The designer and the process

Designer Niki Green.

Designer Niki Green lives in the rugged and beautiful far West of Cornwall – close to Lands End. She collects natural objects: seashells and feathers while walking on the beaches, and flowers and leaves from nearby fields and hedges.

The process

“All my work begins with a natural found object which I find beautiful. My aim is to keep all the detail and uniqueness of the original, so I take a very detailed and accurate handmade mould from it and make a life-size prototype. This is cast in sterling silver to produce a solid silver piece of jewellery which retains the qualities of the original”.
