I draw a lot of inspiration for my jewellery designs from nature, from delicate flowering buds, to the beautiful forms of insects and beetles. For my next collection, I decided to focus on animal skins, predominantly the skin of reptiles and sea creatures.
I absolutely love designing pieces which feel amazing to wear and hold, so I try to create jewellery with interesting textures and sometimes unusual forms.
The skin of so many different creatures can be incredibly intricate and detailed, and it's been a huge inspiration to me for a while now.
I'm so excited to have produced some initial prototypes, like the ring in the image above based on viper skin.
I'll have some new prototypes ready soon which I can't wait to share!
