The idea for this new series of enamels came from doing a special order for a client based on a dream she had had. I have always been fascinated with the history of Runes, and how an ancient people used what are basically the letters of their alphabet to tell the story of their mythology.

Though runes were used in the past for divination, I was more interested in the rune poems which informed their interpretation. Being also interested in making objects imbued with meaning I decided to let the runes inspire these new designs which came from exploring dimension and movement

I am also interested in complex and many faceted meanings - so with these Runes I present only the Rune poem, so you can interpret it yourself

Raido: Riding, a vehicle

For every hero in the hall is Harness soft
And very hard for him who sits astride
A stout steed
Over miles of road.


This piece is made in the technique of champleve, a complex five day process. Each part was first hand shaped with a hammer and then cut and etched. It is made with copper and vitreous enamel, which has been fired from 5 to 7 times. The two parts are enameled on the back (counter-enamelled) and the 'bowl' is signed.

The piece is approx 1 1/4 " square and the chain is 18". This length can be adjusted.
