Silver Double ‘Frond Leaf’ Box Brooch With Iolite

This Silver Double ‘Frond Leaf’ Box Brooch With Iolite, was made years ago as part of a series of pieces for an exhibition.

It’s an early example of my boxy leaf-shape units which later developed into an ENTIRE collection known as ‘Frond Leaf‘.

This piece is made using one of my favourite techniques – box-construction. This is where my shapes are hollow-formed and have a side wall with a top and bottom. This allows me to make a bigger, chunkier piece, which is lightweight.

This ‘Frond Leaf’ brooch is box-constructed from silver. The frond leaf detail is decorated with 18ct yellow gold highlights and is set with an iolite stone. The frond leaf swings freely from a box-unit decorated with an 18ct yellow gold inner box feature.

Both these shapes – the frond leaf itself and the little box – have featured many times in my designs. They seem to be something that is naturally in me. i don’t fight them anymore, I just make them!!
