Spring hasn't quite sprung here yet, but I am lucky to be surrounded by a mini belt of natural woodland.
The latest pendant is influenced by the plethora of lichen, moss and fungi covering the trees, that I can see from my window.
Some people are huge fans of this kind of flora and fauna.Flickr has whole groups dedicated to the subject. I used a couple of pics from this group to base my piece on.The original photos can be found HERE
I love the fungal forms in this image...
...and the colours and textures in this image
The pendant is sculpted in Bronze, with a small focal point of fungi.
An inlay of polymer clay has been textured and painted to mimic the lichen and moss
Here are more photos showing different views.Hope you like them:)
Art therapy has always been a lifeline for my mental wellbeing. I was mainly into water colour painting and amateur sculpting in mixed media.
As it happens in life, major personal events forced me to change careers, and I discovered jewellery making, as a creative outlet
Now it is my main passion, I enjoy exploring all forms and techniques in jewellery making, and am still learning. People close to me have encouraged me to start a shop which is linked above.I'm aiming to carve out a new career doing something I truly love
Hope you like my pieces :)
