“As an object maker I am fascinated by the way people form attachments to the things in their lives. I wish to investigate this and mainly my work has focussed around the concept of jewellery as it is personal, precious and sentimental. I wanted to look at jewellery in a different way – scaling up the objects so that the viewer could at once recognise the form but also ponder the nature of preciousness and perhaps the meaning of their own keepsakes.”
