Amelia Parker's jewellery, cards and small accessories are created using fragments of clay smoking pipes collected from the foreshores of the River Thames.
|Pairs of pipes, prepped and ready |
Many of these fragments date back to the 16th century and are used as found, having been eroded and coloured by time and tide over hundreds of years – they have not been trimmed to size or enhanced in any way. Commissions welcome.
