These are the pieces that I have made for the annual Yowah jewellery design competition. Often I use one of my favourite stones, the ones I cannot part with. I have decided to keep my competition pieces, inspired by Barbara Gasch’s collection, how wonderful to have such a showcase of a lifetimes’ work. Sometimes I make a competition piece using a clients wonderful stone, I get paid for my time and materials to create and they get to keep or sell an award winning (hopefully) work of art.
