+ + + In the country of New Zealand, A girl sits at her cluttered work bench, creating Unique, Dark and magical jewelry + + +



I have been making different kinds of jewelry for 15 years, but only in the last few years, since learning the wonders of silver in 2009, i have been making jewellery i really relate to and feel a burning passion for.


MATERIALS:

Since Getting my wisdom teeth removed i have been fascinated (some would say obsessed) with collecting teeth and turning them into jewelry. I believe teeth are more precious than diamonds, and certainly harder to come across. At first you may feel squeamish about them, but you may come to love their incredible beauty, and the sad reality that they are no longer needed…

MATERIALS:

Since Getting my wisdom teeth removed i have been fascinated (some would say obsessed) with collecting teeth and turning them into jewelry. I believe teeth are more precious than diamonds, and certainly harder to come across. At first you may feel squeamish about them, but you may come to love their incredible beauty, and the sad reality that they are no longer needed. Wearing them on the body is then the ultimate form of recycling. Other materials i am inspired by and love to work with include Human hair (another great form of recycling!!), Gemstones (Particularly Labradorite and Spectrolite) Silver, Antique Photographs, and Acrylic.


INSPIRATIONS:

My first and foremost inspiration is Magic and Sorcery. My love affair with fantasy and in particular, Harry Potter has spanned over half of my life and heavily influences my work - not always in obvious ways. I have always found the escapism of films and TV series a large influence on my life. I am also inspired by all era's of Mourning Jewellery, Egyptian antiques and Heraldry.

TEETH:

The teeth used in my jewellery are all donated locally and from the USA By lovely people who have had to get their poor wisdom teeth removed! Rest Assured i never get my teeth from any dodgy places, and i ALWAYS Clean and sanitise them extremely thoroughly.
