This series of necklaces re-organises tree characteristics to form new groupings and associations, including physical, historical and local. These range from Fruit and Nut Trees, Silver and Golden Trees, Hedgerow Trees, Mediterranean Trees, Trees with Catkins and Trees with Poisonous Berries to groups celebrating emotional states like Weeping Trees and Trees with Heart-shaped Leaves. The necklaces also respond to specific locations such as London’s Columbia Road Trees and extend to the diversity of Poplar Trees in Regents Park and woodland trees growing in Epping Forest. Historical connections celebrate Biblical and Early European Settler Trees. The Memento Mori necklace for Ash Dieback brings together the endangered ash trees and tree hybrids are also explored. The labels are engraved with both the common and Latin tree names and are made using traffolyte offcuts from an industrial sign writer, referencing botanical garden tree ID tags.

These necklaces originate with dried seeds and fruits collected from various London trees and dipped in latex, suspending them in time. They include the winged seeds from Norway maples, cones from Alder trees, husks from Turkish hazelnuts and pom-pom fruits from London Plane trees.

Nut shells from walnut trees and discarded peanuts, cypress cones and the remainders of pinecones eaten by squirrels have been cast in bronze, with cherry pips being cast in silver. The sand-cast glass bead necklaces are made from recycled glass and represent both edible and poisonous tree berries. Edible ones include Juniper and Hawthorn Tree berries.  Poisonous berries range from Holly and Yew to the Wayfaring Tree. The berries from both types look similar.
