Construction is an integral theme in my contemporary jewellery. Scaffolding, cranes and building sites act as the starting point from which I take inspiration from its industrial environment. I utilize non precious materials such as coloured rubber cord and stainless steel wire alongside precious materials, such as silver and gold tube to bring a sense of fragility and elegance to objects which are associated with being unattractive and invasive.
Line is an important feature in my work; I aim for my pieces to have a drawn quality which I transfer directly from my drawings. Delicate movement within my work enforces my desire to incorporate fragility, this results in the pieces having a feeling of spontaneity as the movement is often unpredictable. I enjoy working with a combination of precious and non precious materials, their contrasting qualities is something which stimulates me.
After graduating I hope to begin an artists residency and display work in galleries leading to further postgraduate study.
