I make one-off sculptures from broken jewellery - both antique and modern, mostly of birds and insects.
I spend a lot of time searching for this jewellery and then take the pieces apart and gradually create these birds & insects.
The first piece I made was the dragonfly, from a broken watch and I was so pleased with it I thought I would continue. The bird (with worm) was next and this took quite a while longer! She has wonderful eyes (made from vintage earrings) and she even has her own earrings!
Please have a look at my other pieces below...
