My work explores exaggerated form and flexible wearability. I am interested in the idea that clothes are usually dominant and jewellery is normally secondary, worn as an accessory to add decoration. My enquiry reverses this concept. To show this emphasis I create large scale jewellery that attracts people’s attention and functions as an item of clothing.
I choose rubber gloves as my material, aiming to transforming a mundane, everyday item to beautiful and original objects. I explore dyeing techniques on rubber gloves and the visual investigation of fashionable vocabulary to bring out a unique aesthetic combination of sculptural construction, dramatic colour and texture.
I see my work as subtle and visually interesting, pieces for every occasion.
