Brooch: painted laser-cut oval tambour frame and acrylic paint monoprinted centre, netted with scrap luxury lace from a lingerie designer's studio waste stream.
Distressed pendant: mountboard, ribbon loop, distressed print from a digital version of my original woodblock print 'London Rowan', which was itself hand-carved from a laser-cut outline taken from a photo I took.
Laser-cut leaf pendants, each one digitally traced from an actual leaf. Oak from Derbyshire, silver birch and copper beech from the Chilterns. Greyboard and a fragment of JRR Tolkien's 'The Two Towers', depicting the Ents' march on Isengard. The smudging is residue from the laser cutting, deliberately preserved.
Pendant: layered greyboard block, acrylic paint monoprinting and edging.
