Mutations and Misfits 2. Sterling Silver, Tourmaline Rutilated Quartz, nylon coated stainless steel cable.
October/Novermber 2011. Really long necklace of tourmaline rutilated quartz faceted into hexagon shapes and silver hollow boxes also in hexagon shapes. The variations in the sizes and the spacings give a random feel to the pendant reminiscent on the variations in nature.

Mutations and Misfits 1. Sterling Silver.
October/November 2011. This necklace is my own contemporary version of the Loop-in-loop chain, which I made for my Mutations and Misfits series. Some of the domed discs have a textured surface, these odd units represent mutations within DNA chains.

Blackened Copper Sculpture. 
May/June 2011. This was the largest piece I made for my Organic Modular Structures series at about 15cm high and wide. This object is the same shape as my Tracing Spores pendant, except that each side is formed using a matrix die. This object is riveted together using two rivets per tab for strength, then blackened using liver of sulphur.

Modular Felt Object. Laser cut Felt, sterling silver, cotton thread.
May 2011. Laser cut felt shapes which I have stitched together to form a ball which can be deformed into different shapes.

Tracing Spores. Sterling Silver.
May/June 2011. This neckpiece is part of the Organic Modular Structures series, which was originally inspired by the segments and symmetry seen in the prints by Ernst Haeckel. With this piece I have aimed to bring together the modular styles seen in furniture and interior design, with the modular and segmented structures found in nature. As well as introducing the textile technique of knitting using sterling silver wire. I have constructed the pendant by riveting the hexagon units together into a strong form. These smaller units, hexagons with tabs, were the inspiration for the flower like shape I used for the small laser cut felt brooches.

Spinning Whim. Sterling Silver.
May/June 2011. Part of the Organic Modular Structures series, this pendant is made from triangular units that are riveted together to form a strong rigid structure, which when worn spins on the curved wire segment of the chain. This series was originally inspired by the segments and symmetry seen in the prints by Ernst Haeckel. With this pendant I have aimed to bring together the modular styles seen in furniture and interior design, with the modular and segmented structures found in nature.
