I am interested in the dialogue created when recognizable forms from the history of European fashion and the decorative arts are combined, changed, and reinterpreted in a modern material.
My jewellery uses a chemically hardened plaster that is waterproof and lightweight. I developed a unique image transferring process that I use to chemically transfer images onto the plaster pieces, creating tactile, one-off pieces of jewellery.
The images and forms I use come directly from photos I have taken on my visits to museums and stately homes in Europe. My interest in the forms, patterns, and images from the rich history of European design inspires this collection of contemporary jewellery.
