Helen Noakes’ playful nature is apparent in her work and even on her website, where she lets you know,”you have entered the world of noakes. you should leave now if you aren’t prepared to be amused and enthralled by the jewellery she makes.”

Penguin March, necklace
Noakes happened upon a few miniature figures and a book about resin at the same time. It was enough to trigger her imagination and before long she was on a roll combining the two, setting them into silver and creating little worlds to wear. The jewelry is lighthearted and fanciful and I love the way she adds text to the silver. Don’t you think the words enhance the whimsical nature of the pieces?
