ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the distinctive metalworks of jewelry designer Louise Norrell that reflect narrative imagery. The author relates that Norrell's works show consistency and coherence to her ideas which indicate that the provocative complexity of the objects she uses is not an accident. The author adds that her value on precise metal technique also makes specific contribution to the character of her work resulting in a primitive and chaotic image.
