Back to graphite..
At the very core of the pieces I create for others is my desire to make jewellery that resonates with the wearer from the second they see it.
That .. ‘it’s meant for ME!’ factor is what I strive for. If you see one of my pieces and can’t leave the site, stall or shop without it.. if you smile with an ‘..ahh, there it is..!’ when you bring the piece out to wear it, then I have happily achieved my goal.
In need of some new pieces for myself and short on time, I revisited my treasure trove of beads and pendant pieces I created earlier in the year.
I wanted something in black or grey that was small and subtle to wear with a particular black dress.
With some handmade graphite clay pieces, glass beads and small Tibetan silver squares spread out on my beading tray, I set to work with some silver wire. The end result was perfect for my purposes!
