Worms Head,Gower

I had a magical experience with a walk out to Worms Head Rhosili, Gower last monday. The sun shone all day with a refreshing northerly wind to remind us of autumn. The Worm's Head being the most westerly point of the Gower from where we could see St.Annes head clearly across the huge expanse of blue sea. We had hoped to see grey seals and were not disappointed to come across many of larger bull seals lazing on the seaweed covered rocks and their newborn pups playing close by under the cliffs at low tide.

Mumbles and Gower

The Bay necklace is my most recent design in silver. The currents off Mumbles Head are represented by the twisted forms of silver wire accross which the sailing boat moves from side to side.
