I've been lucky enough to work on a couple of great commissions lately, both using shapes and designs found in my latest range. The Pleated collection is inspired by the angles and folds found in origami and paper sculpting, with shard-like qualities and a hint of Art Deco about it.
The first request was for a pair of silver collar tips. They are made from two peaked segments, which mirror each other in design and are connected by a double strand of chain. It worked out so well and looked so effective that I'll be adding this design to the collection and taking it with me to Made Brighton next month!
I was also asked to make a much more personal piece, based on a couple's love of prisms and the way in which light is refracted through them. Think of 'Dark Side of the Moon' and you'll know what we were aiming for... By all accounts the surprise gift went down a storm, and it was a real pleasure to make a piece that connected my jewellery designs with someone else's vision.
