Abigail has developed a unique collection of jewellery based on the connections between people. This collection consists of joyful hand-sculpted silver people dancing and celebrating friendship. These little people celebrate the bonds between people and are celebrated in a very unique and unusual way.
Each little person is hand caved in wax to create its personality just like we have our own. They are then cast in sterling silver and cleaned up to remove the spurs produced in the casting process.
The surface finish is smooth in areas and rough in others to give the representation of how people have there own story to there lives, some parts are good other are a scars from hard times. There are also surface marks left by my tools and makers hand. These are important marks to me because it shows my mark on a piece I worked on, its my personal connection to those pieces and my story behind what when into making them.
Being jewellery they are then free to go and create there own story with the wearer and become the vessel that carries a personal story for that person every time they wear them. There personalities become a refection of ours and our memories.
