Colour me! It’s Summer – NEW ‘Bold & Bright’ Enamel Jewellery

Recently I’ve been working with Enamel and this medium is starting to develop readily into forthcoming collections and developing series of works.

Pieces are inspired by uniform, structured graphic patterns combined with my making process that organically and naturally evolves through placement and layering. Working with a colour palette of green and accents of blue, components act as precious jewels that become mounted within frames in freeform yet structured settings.

Subtleties within these colour ranges are explored by layering of geometric patterns using spots, dots and squares, on, within the surface and/or subtracting from the forms by hand piercing copper components. A combination of flat, textured, matt, smooth surfaces are encapsulated in blocks of colour to create brooches, neckpieces and delicate pendants.
