Maker's statement

The gerbera petal brooch forms part of the more minimal range I designed specially to complement my "busier" trademark range of printers tray and compartment pieces. Instead of using a diverse range of found and formed object to fill compartments I concentrate on one element, such as a petal and repeat it. Of my two ranges, I see this work more as fashion jewellery: designed to make a statement on very simple beautifully cut clothes. Also see J254
