Carrick Shore

This collection is made up of one-off pieces based on Carrick shore, an area of the south west coast of Scotland. I’ve been adding individual pieces to it every now and then for the last 3 years. It is a continuation of my graduate collection ‘High Tide’.
The shapes come from a combination of the ‘huts’ situated along the coast and the coastal rocks. Sand from the beaches is fired onto enamel adding texture to the surfaces inspired by the sand, stones and shells.

‘Caught in the Rocks’

This is a photographic series featuring necklaces from my Carrick Shore collection. Photographed on one of Carrick’s beaches, I have captured my jewellery within the coastline it is based upon.┬áThe necklaces become a part of the landscape, as though washed upon the beaches along with the pebbles and shells.
These photos show my jewellery caught on the rocks, glinting in the sun like yet to be found treasures – evoking memories of searching beaches for the best shells and most interesting rocks.
