Collection: Twitchers

My Twitchers collection uses my country dog walks as inspiration. I am particularly fascinated and amused by meeting the birds. Whilst bird watching I have closely studied the different structures of their habitats, spikey hawthorn, leafy beech and berried bramble of the South Downs. I draw each bird and foliage individually. I enamel the silver birds and carefully recreate their natural habitat using matt finished silver, oxidisation, recycled gold or gold plating. Semi- precious stones and pearls become Rosehips, Haws and Elder berries.
