The body is now a commodity which an increasing proportion of people
manipulate in the search for unobtainable perfection. My work aims
to show the intrinsic beauty and value of everyone's body. I have
created contemporary jewellery which has a close relationship with
the wearer due to its form and the way it is worn. My work is inspired
by internal muscle and bone structure as well as the exterior of
the body. My pieces use simple geometric forms with subtle curved
details, they are adorned through chasing and embossing. I predominately
use silver, due to the connotations of beauty and purity reflected
with its use. The concept of creating value within the body, which
is something that should already exist but many neglect to recognise,
is also of interest to me.
It is important
for me to photograph my work. The simple soft images show the beautiful
lines of the body, complimented by the jewellery that I make. I
have created a set of photographic pieces which highlight the lines
and structures within the body, adorning these areas with silver
leaf, creating a new skin that shows this beauty and value.
