Dinosaur Jeweller

patterns from made by the shadows of the left over flat-pack

layers of flat pack-would make an interesting print for fabric
And this is the flat-pack balsa beast, found in a charity shop this weekend. I remember mithering for a "really cool" dinosaur magazine as a kid, with parts included week by week to BUILD YOUR OWN GLOW IN THE DARK DINOSAUR!!!!!!! Unfortunately missed a couple of issues so never completed a T-Rex of my very own...until now!

PETRIFIED! New Collection

If you're a creationist, look away now.

If not, here is my new collection of Darwinian jewellery.

"A Fossil is a remnant, impression, or trace of an organism that has lived in a past geologic age." I have cast these pieces from a real fossil, mimicking the process where it was originally transformed from organic matter into stone.

Occasionally Pyrite was the mineral that replaced the organic creature during fossilisation making a (fool's) gold fossil like this one;
Fossil Ring with silver band, pyrite inclusions and diamond centre.


Earrings with silver post and a diamond centre

White version pendant
