Conceptually these two pendants have their roots in seaweed fringed rock pools lined with a shimmering array of quartz lined pebbles, barnacle covered rocks with oysters, hiding in the shadowed ledged depths, quietly working on their grit with determination.

I rather surprised myself with these pendants when I finished them. The ideas for the components was floating and a little fluid, the making and constructing of each piece was like sketching in 3D.
They have a relaxed quality to them which is in stark contrast to the geometry and precision of my production work.

They are a welcome departure, a hint of holidays and summer sun.
