Sheilacallround_pebble_silver_1-800x0‘My jewellery collection is inspired by a seaside theme – the feel of a pebble in the hand – a smooth texture on the skin – a shape that implies the weathering of storm and tide. I love the beach-combing involved in their collection…So many women share a love for shoreline treasure! However, although I’m always on the lookout for perfect shapes, I do have to spend a lot of time in a dust mask, sanding, cutting and drilling.

‘It’s fascinating how the eye seeks a fusion of the irregular organic and a human sense for symmetry.

‘I work with natural materials such as pebbles and shells, combined with semi-precious stones and silver. I use techniques such as drilling, cutting, tiling and inlaying, with knotting and plaiting. Each piece is unique with a variance of colour, shape and pebble markings and is strung on 100% nylon textile.’
