Homage to The Snail

Caitlin Stewart (Retail Assistant)

Polymer clay gold plated chain and hooks

My creations are designed to provoke joy. Whether bespoke or novelty pieces, the objective of my handmade items is to bring a smile to someone's face. This work is inspired by The Snail, a collage by Matisse. My love of jewellery and fauvism encouraged me to conceptualise my take on The Snail into a fashionable piece. I have recently been inspired to create bold jewellery. I chose to use polymer clay as my medium to challenge my practice of colour theory.
