With the opportunity for constant presence, I see jewellery as pure potential!! Potential to not only adorn & distinguish ourselves, but to move, to remind, to manifest, to save, to flash or reveal, it is potential to react, question, push, pull, kick, scream, touch, play & experience in a world much defined by our belongings -if not our longing to belong…
The work is mainly based on curiosities and questioning of the world around me. I seek to create profound connections between the wearer and the jewellery, thus generating physical and metaphorical contact to the self when worn.
Utilising the fact that there is a quite intimate relation between the jewellery and the wearer, as well as the fact that jewellery has the ability to seduce the viewer, remarks, juxtapositions and curious investigations can be made on personal value and signal value through jewellery. I see the body as a very obvious medium for carrying reflections on the human condition, as well as showing social and visual influences of our time. These influences may show as a questioning of the conventional and general perceptions i.e. by using the symbolism of leaving a mark -as when passing on something which is precious to us.
My choices of materials vary according to the character and scale of project।
