The Story

My old workshop was located in an old Fort on the edge of a chalk cliff. I loved the scenery on the surrounding hills (or downs as they are known here) so I would go out for long walks. On one of those walks I noticed Ivy growing in an unusual place, almost at the cliff edge. Now, ivy likes to cling to walls, trees and whatever it can find, but here was nothing, just grassy downland. Yet it lived, clinging onto itself as a dense low mat of ivy leaves, small and hardy because of the harsh winds coming from the English channel.

These little ivy leaves gave me the idea to use them to create unique sets of distinctive jewellery. I collected some small leaves and then devised a way to imprint their image onto silver. Every time I would use a different leaf. I repousse the vein pattern using a hammer, chisel & pitch made from tree resin collected on another walk in Bouldnor Forest. After that the leaf is cut out and shaped and soldered onto a hand forged stem. I have also added oak & maple leaves to my range of leaf designs, but those are seasonal as only the spring leaves are small enough.
