The jewellery mostly consists of leather that is intertwined, weaved and shredded making the final outcome look like an intimate and personal object acting as a shield between the world and your inner self.

Creations that encompass a strong identity while keeping an absolute personal style.

Personally, I love that the material itself and the beauty of the soft leather is the main focus within the pieces, with limited use of hardwear & metals as decoration.  The techniques used create structural forms, following the bodies contours.

When I studied textiles ( a while back!) i experimented with sliced, woven strips of leather to create  3d leather structures and fabrics. I hope to combine my illustrated tattoo work with my ‘fabric’s .. when i get some ‘spare’ time !

……

I have left them up in the studio, to remind me i need to get back to them!
