This project started a few years ago when I was renovating my garden. There was a lot of domestic waste buried there and I kept unearthing tools and cutlery. I work in both precious and base metals, and sitting in my garden workshop, I began to think about what was precious, e.g. the natural environment and my relationship as a jeweller and silversmith to it. This led me to combine materials from the garden with precious metal(silver) and also to look again at garden tools in this context.
