Are they serious or playful ?... complex or simple ?... monotone or dynamic?... plants or anatomy?... Rocks or clouds? A collector said to me once “I don’t need to know if my brooch is flowers or exploding ammunition, I enjoy the changes that occur when worn in different ways”.
Simon Cottrell

Sérieux ou ludique ?... Simple ou complexe ?... Monotone ou dynamique ?... Plantes ou anatomie ?... Rocks ou nuages ? Un collectionneur m'a dit une fois "Je n'ai pas besoin de savoir si ma broche est une fleur ou des munitions explosives…, j'apprécie les variations qui se produisent lorsqu'elle est portée de différentes manières".
