What Remains alludes to memories imbedded within natural objects collected as tokens of a place or time. From scattered seed pods, or shells on a beach, a few are chosen and cherished. Jewellery, with its connotations of preciousness and ability to suggest inherent fragility of the organic, becomes a means to preserve a memory and communicate the essence of the original form.
