I've finally had time in between a few other jobs I've had on the go, to finish making some new Willow jewellery and upload onto my Etsy shop.
I always underestimate how much time is involved to create the pieces and get everything listed, but there is such an immense sense of satisfaction when they are all finished and ready to go. I have some other plates cut and ready to be transformed into jewellery (including a gorgeous Clarice Cliff design) but these will have to wait a while to begin their evolution!
The image above shows an example of a Willow plate once I've decided where the pieces are to be cut, and the individual pieces removed - so you can see the jewellery really is crafted from discarded dinner plates! You can see more jewellery at my shop here:
I am a Textile Designer, Ceramic Designer and Illustrator.
I am English but live in the cute country township of Kyneton, Australia. I love making things. I love collecting things. This is my Bowerbird collection.
What is a Bowerbird?
Bowerbirds have a special characteristic close to my heart…… they are fond of collecting an assortment of found objects to be used purely for decorative purposes. Bowerbirds create beautiful structures, patterns and elaborate displays with their finds and can spend hours arranging their collection of precious knick-knacks.
