My practice explores jewellery’s role as a sender of messages and conveyer of information. My light-based installations encourage viewers to look beyond the physical piece, as simply an object of adornment and in turn, reconsider the boundaries of the medium. Seedlings is a metaphorical representation for both our present and future world. As guardians of this Earth, we sow and nurture the seedlings in our care, and in return receive physical and emotional sustenance from natures’ growth and regeneration. Seedlings provide hope. It helps us develop a narrative for the future. Through the act of nurturing others, we inevitably care for ourselves, our planet, and future generations.
Available for shipment or collection from 25 October 2022.
