I have been collecting treasures like a magpie since I was a young girl, storing my finds in jars for later. I always had a fascination for things that I found on family holidays, such as shells, glass that had been worn down by the sea and the skeletons of leaves found on the forest floor.
This collection of jewellery and other artworks has come about from my desire to utilise some of the things I have collected over the years, as I feel it is essential to create something precious from the things that I have collected as a tribute to the earth and its power and generosity.
There is also a need in me to transform other people's rubbish into something beautiful so that recycling is occurring. This can be seen in the pieces that use discarded copper toilet cisterns, copper electricity wire and smooth glass collected…
