Coral

More than 400 (or one-third) of the worlds coral species can be found in the Great Barrier Reef. Believed to be about 8000 years old, the thin layer of living coral has built up on top of dead corals and algae over the past 500,000 years. Hard coral grows up to 1.5cm per year growing and constantly adapting to the demands of the environment around it. The reefs exotic coral structures provide a permanent home for a myriad of sea life.

From a beautiful piece of Coral, I have carefully made a series of moulds. Its a delicate process. Often I make a dozen or so and only end up using one or two that meet all my criteria to make in fine silver. Elegant simplicity with amazing detail. Mother nature at her very best.
