“Inspired by the intricacies of nature, I create large sculptural pieces that exploit traditional leather techniques.”
Georgina Brett Chinnery

“I try to listen as carefully as I can to the unique voice of the material itself.”
Shelley James

“The materials I choose are not all commonly used in jewellery; I am like an alchemist.”
