'Body on Body'

This body of work explores the relationship between the body and jewellery. By looking at the moment the body and jewellery almost become one this work reflects the ambiguous and intimate relationship between the two.

My practise captures the complexities of the body and its relationship with jewellery. By looking at how delicate lines and bold mass merge my work interrogates the directionality of influence: does the jewellery influence the body or does the body influence the jewellery? Although I am the subject of this exploration I hope that my body is rendered unspecific and unimportant but the feeling of curiosity and intimacy remains.
