Custom Pieces

I've been doing a few custom commission pieces lately. I just love doing this, its so satisfying making jewellery that is personal and special. I think everyone has a unique relationship to the things they wear, particularly jewellery. The closeness of the object to your body seems to foster some kind of special attachment. Organic materials like bone and horn link us to nature and remind us of inevitable transience and the importance of our special relationships. As a maker, seeing my artwork worn and treasured in new and personal ways by the wearer is the best thing! Here are some examples of the things I've been doing lately. I really love the horn beaded necklace with the roses!
