My motivations behind my practice are to encourage the viewer to look deeper into the meaning of jewellery, which will add and enhance the relationship between the jewellery and the wearer. I am interested in sentimental jewellery and our relationship with it and wanted to reflect this in my jewellery. My theme is based around nature; particularly textures, forms and colours found around Llyn Elsi in North Wales where I grew up. I have many memories, which are now sentimental to myself, capturing experiences that I want to remember. I have used these experiences to influence the jewellery I make, therefore making it sentimental to myself and anyone else who enjoys nature and its qualities. Tracing shapes and forms found at the location, I have then recreated this in jewellery.
