Glitter from the Gutter – sterling silver
Glistening piles of smashed car windscreens on London streets became Pamina’s favorite jewels. (Unfortunate peoples’ break-ins became her bounty.) The light catches broken shards of glass like facets in a stone. Her unique technology fusing recycled glass and silver was recognized by Harvey Nichols, who sold this work and made her name. It pleased her to sell smashed car windscreens set in sterling silver jewelry alongside conventional precious gems.
