The photographs above are a selection of early pieces. I made them while experimenting with different techniques and styles. The bracelets at the top I made for two of my friends as they shared the same birthday. When making them I tried to design the bracelets to suit their two different personalities. Below them there are three pendants. The first one was for my mother as I had not given her a piece of jewelry yet and she only really wears pendants. The pendant with the flower I made after reticulating a square piece of silver and attaching the flower made of wire so it could hang freely. This is one of my favourite early pieces and I kept it for myself. Then there is the pendant with the blue stone. It was the first time I had ever set a stone and was drawn to it because of the way the black looks like a small fire burning in the stone.
