A COLLECTION EXPLORING THE CHAOS AND CHARACTERISTICS OF THE URBAN LANDSCAPE, A PLACE THAT CAN OFTEN BE INCREDIBLY BUSY BUT VERY LONELY. CREATED USING SILVER AND ENAMEL.
this is a range of jewellery created for my Final Major Project at UCA Rochester, the range is based on the urban landscape examining areas that usually go unnoticed or are deemed unsightly, such as barbed fencing, satellite dishes, scaffolding... with colours inspired by the vibrant colours of graffiti, posters, and road markings. i find the diversity of urban areas an endless source of inspiration, and amazing places to explore. all my work is hand made as i believe in the preservation of craft through hand made objects.
