“Referencing components that have origins in traditional jewellery using composite and repurposed materials blurs the boundaries between natural and artificial and provides a moment for contemplation. By deconstructed processes and introducing new aesthetics, I am re-evaluating and redefining the visual language of the contemporary jewellery object.”
