Bottle beasties (insect brooches and sculptures)

The insects are the result of continued explorations of my chosen materials, often a spontaneous reaction to the properties and colours of the recycled medium.

Being more experimental, these pieces are an important part of my creativity. They add a playful enjoyment and freshness to my practice whilst in turn aiding the continued development of my jewellery designs.
