She has always
maintained her passion for the medium and the desire to
manipulate silver to create wearable art – body adornment.
After resigning from
teaching Horticulture, Felicity is fulfilling her ambition of
working with silver and now works in her studio at Invergowrie
hand forging silver. She is inspired by the surrounding bushland
and the environment to create contemporary pieces of jewellery.
Her latest work,
“Nesting etal” is a series of hand-wrought sterling silver
bracelets and rings designed from and inspired by birds’ nests,
where each silver wire is worked to resemble the intricate
weaves of grasses the bird has woven.
Felicity is now
working on a combination of elements, utilising her recycled
handmade paper and sterling silver to create earrings and
bracelets - where Arlie allows it!
