Diving For Pearls

Conceptually these two pendants have their roots in seaweed fringed rock pools lined with a shimmering array of quartz lined pebbles, barnacle covered rocks with oysters, hiding in the shadowed ledged depths, quietly working on their grit with determination.

I rather surprised myself with these pendants when I finished them.  The ideas for the components was floating and a little fluid, the making and constructing of each piece was like sketching in 3D.

They have a relaxed quality to them which is in stark contrast to the geometry and precision of my production work.

 They are a welcome departure, a hint of holidays and summer sun.

    1. I love how much landscapes and the natural world inspire you (and me for that matter). I find it interesting how your focus is on the small detail scale, meanwhile mine is focussed on bigger wider further.
