I mainly work in paper or items that are paper based, such as money and stamps from around the world or just beautiful paper that I have collected.
My jewellery is about taking an insignificant two-dimensional item and transforming it in to a three dimensional sculptural form with value and status.
I am inspired by the ancient techniques of Origami. I take the origami forms and twisting and stretching them to create a more complex structure. I use simple silver forms to encase the paper, which adds value to the paper. The simple silver forms complement the complex paper shapes. Using the silver fastening helps to secure the paper and make the jewellery wearable.
