Architectural Jewelry

This brooch was inspired by architect Frank Gehry’s Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, California.

I was immediately drawn to the sweeping curves, the stainless steel finish and the overall beauty of the design. All these qualities lend themselves to the inspiration of making bespoke jewelry.

Boulder opal ring …

No birds this time, just one of my favourite rings.

I made this a few years ago and haven’t been able to part with it yet. The design was inspired by the earth’s strata where this opal was formed millions of years ago.

Leave a comment, I’d like to hear what you think.

bird beginnings …

I’ve always loved birds, maybe it’s because of my name. A few years ago I began drawing them onto shrink plastic to make earrings and necklaces. Once I started, I realized just how many bird fanciers there are besides me. I hope you like them too.

You can click on the image to enlarge it. The photo was taken with my phone so the quality isn’t great, sorry.

Here are a few unfinished pieces. They still need a backing plate …

And another fat little bird …

This well rounded bird is the second in the series of cloisonné enamel bird brooches that I made to feed my infatuation with fat, little birds.

I think he’s very handsome … what do you think?  I’d really like to know.

Fat little birds

Recently, I was commissioned through my website, to make a cloisonné Blue Wren brooch for a ‘significant birthday’ present. It’s not the sort of work that I usually undertake but the gentleman ordering this gift had given it so much loving thought and consideration that I was very happy to do it.

This one little bird has been my inspiration to make a series of cloisonné birds.

Here he is … the first in the series …

I love his robust tummy!
