ARTIST STORY- Lily Griffin's Southern Skies

“My inspiration came from looking at the stars with the kids before bed- the Southern Cross can always be seen from the window.”

“I've been wanting to do a design around the Southern Cross for ages, but it's hard to do something that hasn't been done before.  I started off playing around with some scrap sterling that I had from previous designs- flowers at either end of a stick- hammered them, and then filed them into stars.  Most of my designs come about from playing with silver clay or scraps of sterling silver! For the starstruck pieces, my inspiration came from an old silk kimono design (Ooshima Tsumugi) that was in the shape of a crescent moon (looks like leaves). I lived in Japan a long time ago, and love the simplicity of their designs.”
