Dreaming and Picking Petals

An unfinished collection emerging from these anxious times. A lot of fiddling with gems, coloured threads and hammered recycled silver. Giving shape to scintillating but subtle jewellery. Many knots in between the beads, gems and pearls. Many many knots. Knotting, as hammering may be a way of channeling anxieties as a sort of meditation… or it might just be a crazy useless, but poetic, loss of time, like picking petals, one by one, off daisies.

Materials used are silver, silk threads, pearls, moonstones, crystal, hematite, apatite, howlite, rubis-zoisite, labradorite, jade, rhodonite, aventurine, quartz…
