Found Jewelry

Saint Helena is inspiration at every turn for me and I'd love to have more time for jewelry in situ, as I call it.
Rocks and lichen on the way back from a rocky coastal walk.


I can't plan it, I can only “expect”. In some situations it has to happen quickly (like today when I was making the banana leaf necklace it had started to rain). For some ridiculous reason I enjoy that sense of urgency. The immediacy feels more like play to me - no fumbling with clasps or worrying about weight - just design in the moment.
