Street Tweets II reflects the hustle and bustle of busy London pavements, and especially the annoyance of people engrossed on their phones (note the headphones in gold). Made in silver, the enamelled sections are applied fine silver, to which 22ct gold wire is soldered to the edges, and the silver is then hand carved and enamelled. 18ct gold wire and silver wires are applied to the background, and the background has been hand carved to give the piece extra depth.
