Alys Power Design
Alys Power DesignJewellery made using materials which are reclaimed, reused, reinvented and recycled. These base materials are mixed with fascinating and beautiful found objects, sterling silver and semi-precious stones to create unique jewellery and accessories.
The work explores the challenges of turning base and ‘scrap’ metals and other discarded articles into objects of beauty and value. Working with notions of nostalgia and forgotten memories she investigates and invents the stories and character in her materials.
The themes of her work are eclectic and varied. Often narrative, stamped words and phrases are used to expand on ideas and as decorative elements. Small found objects and pieces of reclaimed and vintage jewellery are frequently used and the notion of each piece is dictated by the materials themselves.
