Festival: 2016

My current jewellery collection ‘ Composition’ draws influence from geometric shapes that when connected explore movement and structure using simple horizontal and vertical lines. Each piece is designed and then constructed by hand from an assortment of elements where each individual component is considered as it represents the use of line within my abstract form. As with many contemporary piece of art black areas dominate, to represent this I incorporate ceramic stoneware selected for its tactile surface and intense appearance. Used alongside silver, rubber and vibrant elastics I create wearable statement pieces for the everyday and the extraordinary.
