Hand Painted & Photomontage Jewellery
Member of the Oxfordshire craft guild
I make original jewellery by hand-painting wood, paper and card (often recycled), and using photomontage. Every necklace or set of earrings is unique. Colour and fine detail are essential to the work. My jewellery reflects the colours of the seasons, or can feature favourite locations and images which are important to individual wearers. The feature beads are handmade from decorated card and photos, each one hand-rolled and finished with several coats of lacquer, leaving them highly durable and light to wear. The earring and necklace findings are sterling silver. I like to use images that reflect the area wherever I exhibit my work, for example in Rye it may be images of the local landmarks and scenery, or stained glass windows from local churches.
