Artist Statement -
The inspiration behind my body of work for this collection comes from my ongoing research into Sustainability in Jewellery Design. I have been working more recently in materials I hadn’t used before, such as BioResin and EcoSilver and experimenting this past year with my own techniques to find a style I like, which I feel reflects my personal idea of sustainable jewellery, where sustainability meets luxury.
For these particular pieces I wanted to provide a luxury design whilst maintaining a more sustainable approach. I wanted my main piece to be wearable, yet still provide quite a dramatic look. My approach was to use BioResin as the main material, using copper and silver for the overall framework. The gold and silver inclusions are made up of recycled chocolate foil wrapper, to give the luxurious effect I wanted to achieve teamed with black and creams to compliment one another.
