Ade­vout fan of the Lord of the Rings tril­ogy, War­craft, Vik­ings and the Game of Thrones, among oth­ers, Daisy cites fan­tasy films as her main in­spi­ra­tion. “Fan­tasy is some­thing that has been cre­ated through pure imag­i­na­tion and that is what makes it so in­cred­i­ble,” says Daisy who cur­rently fo­cuses on fe­male char­ac­ters when en­vi­sion­ing her col­lec­tions. A pas­sion for ev­ery­thing dark and macabre de­fines the jew­ellery. “I like to show this through my work and cre­ate some­thing that is uniquely pow­er­ful and makes a bold state­ment,” she says. Her Twisted Tales grad­u­ate col­lec­tion deftly cap­tures the aura of the char­ac­ter. Crafted in ster­ling sil­ver, the neck­piece was ini­tially de­signed with the evil fairy god­mother, Malef­i­cent, in mind. Want­ing to con­vey beauty in the dark­ness, Daisy crafted it as an en­tan­gle­ment of black ny­lon branches ac­cented with sil­ver thorns, rem­i­nis­cent of an ar­mour. She cre­ated the hero piece and then, pared it down to make smaller pieces in ster­ling sil­ver, set with black di­a­monds, for ev­ery­day wear.

Dou­ble-fanged pen­dant.
