A few examples
I have always been interested in bold and creative jewellery. For my necklaces I combine handmade and thrown ceramic beads with interesting beads that I collect during travels abroad and through internet searches. Especially during lockdown when my studio was out of bounds, I enjoyed assembling my collection of beads into necklaces.
My inspiration is often the beads itself: gemstones and ostrich eggshell beads from Namibia, handmade glass beads from Ghana, brass beads from Senegal, antique beads from markets in France, and any other source that will compliment my eclectic style of jewellery. Most necklaces have my own ceramic beads as the main component.
Expressive and unusual, my necklaces are all unique one-off creations.
