leptospermums in silver

First we clean the silver and coat the surface with bitumen paint.
Then I draw leptospernums, Scratching in the silver, the scratchy, twiggy, sticky bushes covered in tiny white blossoms.
Then Rebecca goes to work with her jeweller's saw and ...........
The lovely tiny blossoms appear, magical, and softly gleaming silver.

From Swamp Cartography Rebecca Ward jewellery and Shannon Garson porcelain collaboration we are doing in preparation for a nationally touring exhibition 2011-12
