Gold is so very captivating, so very seductive...

As a designer I pay attention to trends, but I always carve my own path. 

Often I see fine jewellery made with as little precious metal as possible, just enough to support the stones. 

In my opinion such an approach is not really luxury, for luxury does not hold back.  When I pick up a gold necklace in my hands I want to feel the reassuring weight of it, I want to be able to fall in love with the contours, the geography of the metal.

I have always said I that I strive to make jewellery that feels as good as it looks.  When you are wearing a necklace you may not be able to see all of it all of the time, but certainly you can feel it.

Her Regard is a fine art jewel inspired by my favourite novel, The Stress Of Her Regard by internationally acclaimed fantasy writer Tim Powers.  The story re-imagines the lives of our some of our most notable poets Shelly and Lord Byron, from a supernatural point of view.  Their incredible work is influenced by an otherworldly being, part muse, part incubus - it is 'her regard' or her focused attention which is responsible for the exceptional quality of their art.

This is a necklace I want to wear myself, to express power and, dare I say it, ardour.  The swirls radiating from the gemstones evoke the idea of energy waves, thought patterns and emotions.  Each of the fifteen princess cut gemstones are tilted forty-five degrees, we see them differently, as inverse pyramids, their power harnessed in the gold settings.

The textured links are a delight to caress, even the clasp is sculpted from solid gold and can be completely removed from the necklace.  In this way it is possible to shorten the chain on both sides equally and allow the chain to dangle down the back of the neck symmetrically.
