“Nibble, nibble little mouse.
Who is nibbling at my house?”
This is what the witch in Hansel and Gretel asks the intrepid children. Contemporary Jeweller, Rebecca Ward and I have created a whimsical range of porcelain and silver jewelery with a seductive (and slightly greedy) edge.
Rebecca Ward creates delicate, evocative pieces of jewellery from found objects, such as beach glass, pebbles and vintage beads. Rebecca says, "I love fossicking and responding to the poetry and stories of the found object Rebecca's jewellery was recently showcased in Dave Evans’ "Cool Hunting Green" book .
“Nibble” delves into the surreal, strange and fairytale aspects of food and desire. It is a world of absurdist dreams about flying pumpkins, naughty peas and magical rings. Double meanings, wordplay and hidden clues take the wearer up the beanstalk and into another dimension where all is not as it seems. Explore the possibilities of finding yourself in a world of delicious and deceptive food in this range of seductive porcelain and silver adornment.
