“This collection of earrings is an experiment in Alchemy: from unworn pieces of jewellery I have recreated the lost partners of these pairs. From precious fragments and dust I have created seed pearls of silver and gems forged from antique gold. Earring no longer worn but treasured away leave only a trace or an impression of what was once complete. Rather than abandon them to the past they can be given a second life. I create new pieces to reclaim the value of the original jewel, because every earring left alone needs Re-Paired. “
