Raw Stone -
Lost & Found Collection:
I have a real soft spot for any raw stone. Natural materials in their found state, I find truly beautiful. I love how as a jeweller, I can take some of these precious gifts and create pieces which can be worn, cherished and kept.
My Lost & Found handcrafted jewellery collection was inspired when I took a holiday to beautiful Denmark. Following a bustling few days in Copenhagen, I headed West to mid Denmark for a tranquil few days surrounded by farmland. A day trip out to Båring to take in some fresh sea air, revealed itself to be a day of wandering, discovery and beach combing. I fell in love with a raw stone or two!
What begun as a mission in finding the time to just ‘be’ on holiday, evolved into an urge to capture that perfect moment of freedom in time. Feeling the need to savour and share these raw materials. So often they’re disregarded, so I scoured the flint beach for a small number of raw stones.
The ones that felt the most tactile in the palm of my hand. Back at home in my studio these began to reveal themselves, as an honest nod to the timeless. Materials perfectly polished by nature, were freeze-framed in gold Each unique stone honoured in lavish luxury in their natural beauty.
