Using high carat gold & silver with her signature crochet techniques, Teri creates elegant, timeless jewellery that will astonish. Entirely hand-crafted, her classic designs incorporate tiny diamonds and pearls which are crocheted or french-knitted into individual stitches.
Teri has come to see her crochet pieces literally, as 'drawings in the air' - the pencil line replaced with precious metal wire. She works with simple crochet stitches, repeated rhythmically in soft, fluid silver or gold, with discipline and patience pure sculptural forms emerge.
She finds in this 'low-tech' production method, a gentle, quiet rebellion against todays world of 'instant everything'
