It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black, the cobbled streets silent and the hunched courters'-and-rabbits' wood limping invisible down to the sloeblack, slow, black, crowblack, fishingboat-bobbing sea.” Dylan Thomas

I love reading and listening to Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas. Dylan’s interpretation of welsh life in a small coastal town he called Llareggub (bugger all backwards) was for me, the first taste of his creative genius. I have been inspired to create a piece based on Dylans work and the small chapeled fishing town of LLareggub with its houses as blind as moles, boys dreaming wicked, lips is a penny, hotwater bottle bodies, hear the dew falling and Cockled cobbles that run down through the seaweed smelling town to the fishing boat bobbing sea.

This is my Llareggub necklace in solid silver and serpentine beads. I have tried to capture the story of Dylan's Welsh coastal town,the sea salty dreams and tales of shipwrecked marriages and relationships. The romance of love lost and lusted after and of the memories of sailors lost to the swirling currents of the sea.
