I use enamel on the pieces and stone back reapplying enamel in a painterly style, trying to convey some of the decaying urban environment surrounding our coastlines (such as the peeling paint on a Fishing boat or rust on an anchor chain).
Using designs I create from drawings and computer illustrations, I hand cut and form these shapes from copper; texturing the shapes with hammers, fire and traditional silversmith tools. I weather the forms, trying to capture the textures of both nature and the effects of weather, the sea and the decaying urban environment surrounding that nature. Making jewellery that reflects the constant battle between nature and manmade. Creating beauty out of decay and natural ageing.
