This is some Laura Ashley wallpaper which I used in a necklace that I made in 2003. I found the wallpaper lining the drawers of an old buro at home. The necklace also contains lots of odd trinkits within the silver clusters, such as 'bra bits' (little enameled hoops used on bra straps) and suspender belt clasps.
I love the energy, the muddle of it all. I never thought that I was that inspired by nature but I think that the randomness must have filtered in through my subconscious. This painting helps me understand that.
