Roses are beautiful flowers and convey messages depending on their colours. Red roses are a symbol of true love, yellow brings messages of platonic love and white conveys innocence and purity.
Sketches of roses
I took various photographs of clusters of roses in bunches and sketched them from above. I then simplified the sketches giving the drawings a stylised feel.
Once etched I cut up the silver to make all of the jewellery items.
They then went to Assay at Goldsmiths' Hall in London to be hallmarked where I am registered to hall mark my jewellery.
Some pieces had the roses drawings filled with gold giving them a luxurious feel.
Silver and gold Roses money clip.
