COUP de COEUR … Carrie Dickens

Carrie Dickens

Discovered thanks to MARZEE graduation show 2015 where her jewels are presented ….

And on her page on RCA (Royal College of Art) work 2015, it begins PERFECTLY for me : « It all begins with touch. »
and on her website, the same : « jewellery that touches back »

« I believe the physical ‘touch’ of jewellery has powerful potential to change the way we feel about ourselves and the world around us. My work investigates tactile potential, especially for soothing comfort: I aim for sense-full surfaces, nuzzling and strokeable textures, enveloping experience. I aim for jewellery that touches back. »

OOOOH YES !!! sooo important notion for me !

« This exploration follows directly from the research I undertook for my MA dissertation and my experimental installation which invited people to ‘wear’ pebbles suspended from the ceiling.  With this series I’m aiming for a nurturing, nestling, comforting nuzzle. »
