Maker's statement

As a true one-off piece, this neckpiece is a relatively rare excursion for me, a basking in the luxury of making for the pleasure of creation. It explores the sensuality of jewellery, the restriction and simplicity of the silver collar contrasting with the cascade of pods which moves and falls across the torso - the centre of one's being.
