The Seed Bead Collection

I'm pleased to show you, how the pieces look when worn.
A big thank you to my lovely model and well behaved kids,
we spent a lovely morning chatting and photographing.

When I see them being worn, they really come into their own, I hope the photographs translate this well.
I'm really pleased with this body of work. 

I have plans for an Autumn Collection  ...but there are some porcelain piece in production now and I cant wait to show you.

These works are in the SHOP.

The Seed Bead Collection 2016

Art Deco


Dusty Tones
This collection of Woven Rope necklaces will soon be in the shop.

My focus here was to work within three distinct colourways and play with the design elements and principles.
I use colour to highlight and accentuate shape and proportion.
I play with colour by bringing forth selected colours whilst receding others, within the crescent shape of the neck pieces.
It is this interplay that keeps me intrigued and passionate about making these art pieces.
I often say to myself...What more can I do? Where can I push the design? What are the new possibilities?

The Seed beads add another textural element to the work and a touch of glamour too!

Each piece is unique, I have no interest in making mass production, so most designs are unlikely to be made again. 
I want my work to evolve and roll out organically as I collect inspiration from many sources....but still be distinctly my own.

Next is to add the porcelain element!
