Jewellery designer Heather Shaw creates contemporary individual pieces combining found and reclaimed objects with new man-made ones to produce beautiful results.
With a love for collecting vintage and antique items, such as, cameos, pocket watches, old coins and keys to incorporate into her jewellery. Each piece is unique and different, something her customers love.
More recently her love for finding vintage items has lead her to produce box framed collaged pieces, this body of work is based on the notion of 'collecting' and combines lovely found items with drawings, text and layering of paper.
