Vertebrae Necklace - Coconut and Pearl Shell with Gold Mirror


Using carefully sourced materials I create patterns, texture and mood within methodical works which take considerable time and care. Whilst my hands work busily I have an opportunity for my mind to wonder, dream and consider many aspects of life.

This Vertebrae necklace was created using rare Jamaican Coconut shell with pearl shell threaded upon a cotton/polyester blend chord for extra strength.

I have always found sanctuary in the act of making and feel very privileged to have been gifted a relationship between self and material as part of my everyday existence. I have been making feverishly throughout these COVID times and feel blessed to have creativity at my core. These works are part of what I have titled The Isolation Series.

Vertebrae - each of the series of small bones forming the backbone, having several projections for articulation and muscle attachment, and a hole through which the spinal cord passes.
