Txt/Bk range is influenced by an old cigarette tin which I found when clearing my grandparents’ house. It had been soldered shut and the intrigue from this so permanently shut tin has triggered several ideas.

When I opened the tin with a saw, it revealed love letters from my Grandpa to my Grandma during the early years of their courtship during World War II. The letters were very personal, and so precious that they were soldered shut, kept safe in a tin for nearly seventy years.

With the development of digital technology, love letters are a becoming a lost art. Txt/Bk takes precious text messages and immortalises them on jewellery.
