Found, Disguised, & Sewn

This collection was very close to my heart. It's pieces of vintage and reclaimed sterling silver filigree that I've been collecting for years - as well as pieces of vintage 1950's silver metal beads strung on chain that I paired together with pearls and vintage crystal. It was a deliberate commentary on our perception of 'precious jewellery' - turning precious metals into base metals through copper plating, or making them more expensive looking through 24 carat gold plating.
