BECKY CROW

My work has always had a strongly illustrative leaning. It grows out of drawings and sketches some observational, some imagined.

About

Stories or poems are captured in silver and transformed into miniature scenes telling out across the surface of a brooch or hanging as a pendant. Recently a new forest of jewellery has sprung up inhabited by woodland creatures. Trees in copper and silver are idntified by shape, leaf and bark. In their shade foxes stalk pheasants and the occasional person wanders through.

Previously people have been the focus and questions about where we fit in the world were asked by the pieces; what journeys are we on? Who are we connected to? What spheres do we move through or circles of influence do we have?

Alongside other pieces follow different themes; some are just playful accessories, and some take inspiration from the natural world- a flight of birds, butterflies in summer, the jewellery resonant with memories of watching these things.

I work with sheet silver, and copper with some small amounts of gold for detailing. The metal is pierced out, I will then apply textures or patterns to the surface using a rolling mill and templates. These components are then layered together and soldered. The pieces are finished with a mixture of matt, oxidised and polished surfaces to add depth and tone.
