Everyone has a favourite animal. Personally, I love birds, elephants, monkeys, apes, sealife and much more.
I can’t really recall what inspired me to include animals as part of my designs but I do recall wanting my animal designs to stand out.
It is not easy to try and establish the correct shape of the animal but my aim was to achieve a shape so you could recognise what animal it is! Lots of sketching was required before hand, certainly with my horse and seahorse pendants.
I wanted to achieve a sense of individuality with my designs and to feel confident my customer would know they have something different and original.
I don’t really know if any other animals may be on the agenda. I would love to create the shape of an elephant head, but would someone wear it? That is the question.
What animal would you like to see incorporated into jewellery?
