Flowering grass rings: interlocking set

This set of 3 rings begins to feel a lot like my illustration. I feel these pieces are slightly whimsical, fragile, but yet still bold and robust.
This "sketching in silver", as I like to call it is what adds richness to my work. By creating the fantastical that explodes onto my sketch book page I feed my creative mind. As metal form has a very different feel to the black and white graphic. It becomes tangible and interactive, small details get worked out, the bend of a branch, the tilt of a flower, the length of a curve. I love to take part in exhibitions because it gives me an excuse to push myself further.
 From this start I can refine, tone down and commercialise this range of jewellery and it will have a depth behind it. Well for me any way.
