Outback Jasper Flat Disc and Horn Ring Necklace by Tessa Tyldesley
The artist clearly draws inspiration from the coast and other rural surroundings to design and produce this beautiful yet understated series of necklaces.
Tessa Tyldesley has been designing jewellery for many years, she works with semi-precious stones and silver, and sometimes a touch of fresh water pearl, glass, lava or horn may be incorporated into her pieces. She studied fine art painting and this has a huge influence in the way she designs her jewellery. The starting point of a necklace is an array of stones on a table, just as a painter may have an array of colours on their palette. The final piece has gone through a process of mixing colour, texture and shape that culminates in a well balanced and comfortable necklace. She makes big bold necklaces and is just as happy designing smaller work with the same input of artistry. Bracelets and earrings are made to either match a necklace or stand alone. Tessa lives in the Cotswolds and her work can be seen in galleries in the West Country and further afield.
