Jack Inspired - Robyn

Inspired by Jack's use of found materials, I went on to create this neckpiece. I loved the nostalgic aesthetic created by the pottery; it's floral, feminine pattern, it's crumbling edges, it's unusual shape. You are immediately aware that this fragment was once part of a whole, and is thus rife with memory. In setting the piece in silver, it takes on a sense of preciousness, whilst I felt the pearl gave it a slightly more elegant, feminine touch.

Hi Robyn
The use of the pottery is a nice touch. It is clearly inspired by Jack and yet uniquely your own. I hope you all get more feedback and the interaction stimulates your further development as jewellers in exciting ways.
