I realise that wearing my work may not be the image that everyone wants to present to the world,
however I am having so much fun that I think I may just have to carry on !!
I am a maker of 'wearable art' as opposed to a maker of contemporary jewellery.
My work adorns the body & makes a statement;
it is not for the faint hearted.
I love to help the wearer stand out from the crowd & feel special.
I use the things people throw away, donate to charity shops, gift to me
discard in the many places I find myself
wandering with my canine
'furry footed helpers'
(I also steal their toys !!).
I love to create surprise and laughter.
My pieces are often quirky & often require a sense of humour.
I love colour, texture, shape, the highly beautiful & the often ridiculous.
The beautiful is often put alongside the slightly sinister
& the often very bizarre.
My work is highly intuitive, I allow it to evolve organically.
The materials & objects I use guide me towards the final form.
Everything I create is totally unique and handcrafted with love in
'The Big Spotty Dog Studio', Cornwall.
