My studio is located across from the farmer's market on the Halifax Port. Out of the blue one day I got it into my mind that I was going to cast some rose thorns and create a series of jewelry using them. I ran over to the farmer's market and found one perfect rose stem with three beautiful thorns. I took them back to the studio, removed the thorns from the stem and set about casting them. I was rather pleased with the outcome and the Thorn series was born.
I have a thorn bracelet that I wear every single day. It is so easy to wear that I don't mind wearing it in the studio, and is the only piece I'll wear while I'm working.
