Alison Macleod

Alison’s jewellery is based on her love of collections, whether in a junk shop, a curiosity cabinet or antique jewellery box. A collection is often charged with personal meaning: Curios are collated according to one’s own unique experiences and understanding of the pieces. For the viewer these sometimes unusual combinations can throw up more questions than answers. This ambiguity only intrigues Alison further. When translating these ideas into her jewellery she incorporate the shapes, textures and often collected objects themselves. Her catkin collection is made from hand layering intricate metal discs to create a delicate fish scale pattern.
