Ocean inspired jewellery

“It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black, the cobbled streets silent and the hunched courters'-and-rabbits' wood limping invisible down to the sloeblack, slow, black, crowblack, fishingboat-bobbing sea.”

“Now behind the eyes and secrets of the dreamers in the streets rocked to sleep by the sea, see the titbits and topsyturvies, bobs and buttontops, bags and bones, ash and rind and dandruff and nailparings, saliva and snowflakes and moulted feathers of dreams, the wrecks and sprats and shells and fishbones, whale-juice and moonshine and small salt fry dished up by the hidden sea.”

I love reading and listening to Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas. Dylan’s interpretation of welsh life in a small coastal town he called Llareggub (buggerall) was for me, the first taste of his creative genius. I have been inspired to create a piece based on Dylans work and the small fishing town of LLareggub with its houses as blind as moles, boys dreaming wicked, lips is a penny, hotwater bottle bodies, hear the dew falling and Cockled cobbles that run down through the seaweed smelling town to the fishing boat bobbing sea.
