Alan Ardiff from whose website I've pinched these images to give him a tiny piece of free advertising. If I ever get anywhere as competent as this I'd be well chuffed! His pieces incorporate gold as well as silver and often have mechanisms so that they move, butterflies can flap their wings and tiny cars encapsulated into cufflinks roll on wheels.
I'm currently producing a portfolio of work that inspires me and Mr Ardiff, sir, you will certainly feature. And I'm beginning to formulate an idea for a design that incorporates some of multi colour kinetic qualities that I admire, albeit at a much simpler level.
Lizzie my jewellery teacher tomorrow about what's best. In the meantime I'll start to show it off, hidden amongst a nest of other rings to conceal its rough edges!
