My project combines the two seemingly different forms of creative practice, jewellery and architecture, exploring the relationships between wearable objects and architectural volume.
For me jewellery relates to the body in the same way that buildings relate to the earth, it explores and interacts with the contours of the living body as a landscape from which it can be constructed.
I have produced a series of small scale objects that transform the spaces that surround us into wearable, luxurious objects, one a miniature version of the other.
I start by drawing abstract geometrical shapes within my sketchbook which I take from my source of inspiration; I then evolve these shapes by starting to create designs for objects that eventually progress into pieces of jewellery.
I work best within a workshop environment; somewhere I can surround myself with tools while experimenting with precious metals, pushing their boundaries and testing their limits. I enjoy the process of being hands on with my materials and often learn through tacit knowledge. email@example.com
