In a world revolving around social media, it is hard to imagine a day go by without our daily dose of virtual interaction. An intricate part of this process, is further facilitated by the sharing of images, which offer a glimpse into the inspirations and interests of our online ‘friends’.
This latest collection is inspired by found images depicting flora and fauna. The images are chosen for their visual composition or specific aesthetic elements and are given a three dimensional ‘chained interpretation’, thus converting them into wearable pieces of jewellery. Unlike the making process used in preceding work, each enamel colour is fused and fired on the chain separately and the piece is constructed afterwards from the previously enamelled chain. This allows the piece to evolve with the various types of chain and colours mixing and intertwining, poetically responding to the images as if they were ‘still lives’ , translating them into an impressionistic pixelated relief of textured layers.
