With this piece I had wanted to create a three-dimensional form that was simple, geometric and had a pattern pierced out of it. The design developed into a cage like structure that gave the impression of being light weight, whilst keeping with the solid form. The silver is finished with a black patina to make the cut out pattern the focal point of the brooch as the light catches it.
I love capturing the world around me and seeing how nature grows and develops. This forms some of the inspiration for my designs. I also like to show my work in progress here, as each piece is uniquely different from commissions to my collection pieces.
