Polly works only in 22ct gold and semi-precious stones, which, she says, form a direct link with the ancient goldsmiths who used exactly the same materials. Her strongest influences are the jewels of the Ancient Near East, from deep antiquity the end of the Roman Empire. This influence extends from the wreath she made as a commission of the World Gold Council – Hellenistic period - to the little twisted wire earrings in the Small Treasures collection – Mycenaen Greece - and everything in between.
Polly works alone, she designs all her own pieces, and because she makes everything herself, each piece is unique. While she can revisit and repeat an idea, she will never be able to completely copy anything, which makes every item she makes a one-of-a-kind treasure.
