The Inspiration

'The jewellery is a synthesis of my life experience. At college I was inspired by ancient images of powerful women. So my work is about women and assertiveness (Sibyls), it is about wisdom ('Wisdom of Life' triple ring set), it is about togetherness whilst being separate ('The Feeling of We' pair of rings). It's about change (moving rings etched "This will change"). It's about the spirit in all of us (the gold bead etched 'the spirit'). It's about the design suiting the form; about words being ambiguous; about challenging conventional ideas both in jewellery design and in the way we organise our lives. It's about tiny precious moments (little diamonds). When you wear one of my rings etched with 'on and on..' is it about 'eternity' or 'interminability'? It's about not knowing and knowing........(heavy stuff! - maybe it's about humour?). We sung this song in the 70s:

You can't kill the spirit
She is like a mountain
Old and Strong
She goes on and on and on
'
