Connected from spiralstone on Vimeo.

Often my jewellery is about cycles and rhythms. This collection is about being connected. There may be no loop, no beginning or end. It is about links and bonds that are here now.

I am connected to my children through love.

I am connected to my family by blood.

There are people I am connected to through friendship.

I am connected to a community of home schoolers and attachment parents through beliefs and ideals.

I am connected to a worldwide community through a love of handmade, through nurturing the craft and skills of individuals.

These connections are like overlapping ripples in a pond. Rippling outwards, across the world, or just down to the local shops.

We are connected somehow. You are here now making a connection with me, from mind to mind, across time and space.

This work began as an idea, came together as a whole piece, and now will go out into the world as a symbol of the way in which we are all connected.

Each ring comes with a card that shows the entire collection and its place within it.

Each ring is 25mm x 25mm and they range in size from 5 ¾ to 9 ½ .
I’ll be listing them in my Etsy store tomorrow night (Sydney time).
