My exhibition will be a mixture of silversmithed work, particularly hammered silver bracelets and earrings, and colourful semi-precious stone and silver jewellery. I enjoy combining glowing colour with textured silver, sometimes using pendants and beads that I have collected on my travels. I particularly love old silver and beads, wondering what the story is behind them and who once wore them as adornment. My silver rings made from antique or vintage teaspoons are a variation on the same theme.
Also exhibiting with me this year are Neil Butterfield (Painting) and Phillip Dove (Stained Glass). After exhibiting for many years in Wolvercote, this is a new venue for us - we're looking forward to welcoming new visitors, although we hope to see some loyal regulars too!
