Within my jewellery I have always strived to create pieces that convey a sense of playfulness yet show structure through the form. Repetition and texture has also been important to me as it provides comfort and nostalgia. My pieces are a study of childhood exploration and of encrypting puzzles. I am interested in creating simple geometrical shapes as they are the fundamental building blocks in childhood play and a symbol of learning. Reminiscing on childhood innocence is a reaction to an unknowing of how to deal with adulthood on a day-to- day basis and with lager societal problems such as inequality and prejudice. Childhood innocence elicits a frame of mind where assumptions don’t exist. This state of innocence removes judgment and it brings forth notions of understanding.
