In her jewellery, Louise draws on her memories of family seaside holidays, turning these precious moments into precious objects. She uses fine silver, enamel, combined with found objects, such as slate, shells and driftwood. The juxtaposition of the precious metals and gemstones with the found objects elevates the status of these, making them more precious and creating a nostalgic feel to the pieces, which invites viewers to engage with their own memories of days by the sea.
