I treasure my beautiful lichen inspired silver earrings by Linda Norris. I wear them nearly every day they remind me of the beautiful Pembrokeshire coastline which inspires Linda's work as artist and jeweller. I wish I had such talent! - Elaine Pierce, London
My jewellery pieces have come out of textural explorations of the landscape and are made as an extension of my work as a painter. Each item is an individual piece inspired by an aspect of the landscape of Wales, be it leaves, shells, lichens or rock and wood textures.
All the pieces are made and fired in my studio in the heart of the Preseli Hills in Pembrokeshire using glass and silver.
Making jewellery is a lot of fun. I love the idea of directly harvesting an aspect of nature and, by fire and design, transforming it into something precious that can be worn. Exploring new media enables me to experiment and expand my work in new directions
