Artist's statement

Pattern making is an important part in Morna Darling's process and she is fascinated with the structural repeated elements of fabric and how to emulate these in her jewellery. Her work takes inspiration from fabrics and clothing and she is interested in representing the qualities of cloth such as layering, threading and folding. 

Using different materials from her source, allows Morna playful exploration of how to create aspects of textiles whilst not actually including them in her work. She experiments with a combination of materials including silver, patinated copper and plastic.

Working with a subtle palette of blues and silver Morna creates wearable pieces with texture, pattern and unique compositions of materials.

Morna Darling is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art and she currently creates work in her studio in Glasgow.
