« ‘Fragments Make the Whole
My current work is created from fragments of observation and perception of my environment. I record images during my daily journeys around the city streets of Oxford. Ornamentation and wealth is combined with alternative encounters in the city: graffiti, road kill, rubbish and road markings.
My jewellery consists of these images, which have been cut from old steel cans and fused together. In turn these whole pieces become fragments of new images, reminiscent of ornamental ironwork or Baroque art.
Utilising recycled materials is important to my work on a symbolic, environmental and aesthetic level. Discarded materials and images of overlooked objects are resurrected and given a new role within a piece of jewellery. By incorporating labour intensive techniques such as enamelling and using hand-made tools, I add symbolic value to both image and material. «
