Arthropod!

About this project

My main collection is called Arthropod, named after the large group of animals containing crustaceans and insects. My jewellery celebrates these fantastic creatures, imagining them evolving onto and around the human body. I use traditional silversmithing techniques, forging silver over steel stakes into three dimensional forms. These are often articulated, and combined with handmade hinges and catches, to create lively, humorous pieces of wearable sculpture.
