"Though not a trained enamellist, I found working with enamel a material that expresses me more than any other. Stretching the boundaries of what can be achieved with enamel as a medium, I have developed my own unique method of sifting and fusing it on a movable base like silver and gold chains. My designs evolve through a dialogue between my source inspiration and the creative potential of the enamel. The versatility of the material is what attracts me the most as it gives an organic feel to my work. My response to the way in which the materials fuse together is intuitive and impromptu. With each layer the enamel adds form, structure and substance to the piece. The natural fragility of the material exudes a new found strength, richness in texture and an acquired preciousness at the same time as the silver or gold chain is slowly buried into obscurity. The inquisitive attention, tactile approach and numerous juxtapositions, provoke a sense of preciousness in my jewellery that is understated and enigmatic." - LP
