Recently I have been working on some new pieces. My work is always a development of pieces, shapes and ideas that have come before. I love working in my sketchbook and with paper and card to develop and test ideas. Even when I do this a piece will change as I begin to make it - I try to work intuitively with the materials and if something doesn't feel right, I ask myself why and then try to improve it so that it does. I have been working on quite a large necklace recently and I wasn't feeling particularly happy with it at one stage. I suddenly thought to myself that if I saw it on Pinterest I wouldn't pin it to my jewellery board! It made me smile that that was what it took to kickstart me into really questioning the design and pushing me to develop it into something I loved.
This necklace will be at MADE London in October :-)
