Dittany makes contemporary jewellery from sterling silver, clear resin and layered coloured card printed with her drawings. Trained at Middlesex University, her ‘wearable artworks’ have previously been sold in the Hepworth Gallery shop.
She has developed innovative construction methods that mean her pieces are lighter than other silver jewellery and stronger than other paper jewellery. She aims to create abstract forms without austerity, and clean lines but with the subtlety and detail of pattern. Each piece is unique as it uses card cut from a different part of the pattern. Current patterns include a Sea Anemone theme and a Microorganism theme.
