Highest Academic Achievement in Honours Year Gold & Silversmithing.



Whilst acknowledging that all our actions impact others, both human and non-human, and that all beings are connected, I explore how the meshing of humankind and the plant world can be embodied in the wearable object.

My jewellery-informed practice investigates how the use of unconventional and sustainably sourced or recycled material, including abandoned objects, can encourage a new awareness of our place in the world. One where we recognise ourselves as part of a great web of life. All originally derived from the natural world, my material choices help focus concerns about the human exploitation, commodification and the over-consumption of plants.

I explore how the act of making, wearing and encountering a jewellery object can move beyond admiration, and via a material experience, form a link with the plant world by gently placing nature back into the wearer and viewer’s consciousness.
