Annabet came to contemporary jewellery after making small functional pieces in metal, tea strainers and infusers then spoons and eating tools. She now uses the same techniques to shape, texture and perforate her jewellery. Annabet's primary materials are silver and vitreous enamel, she also uses aeroply plywood shaped and painted. When she began to experiment with enamel Annabet used it to add a texture to the visual language. It also gave colour to her work.
This work is shown at Atelier Beside the Sea as part of the Pots, Prints and Jewellery exhibition.
