With Pendants and necklaces the Jewellery is worn next to the heart, the gold work, an intricate frame, a sit for the stones. In some pendants, the stones were ‘studio – cut’, at times shaped in an uneven amorphous form, challenging creativity and workmanship in finding ways to set them beautifully.

First work in Silver
This piece was the accidental beginning of this studio, it was quite large, around 80mm in diameter. Smoky-Quartz, Amethyst and Sapphires. * Starting the work on this one, I know next to zip about jewellery making. Struggled a lot and learned a lot. It still exists, I should think, in the home of old friends.
