A physical awareness of the body is fundamental to one’s experience of self and space. The haptic perceptions, stimulated by the adornment of jewellery, can enhance a sensorial consciousness. My jewellery embodies the creation of physical interpretations of my surroundings – urban landscapes, nature and my family. The process of making contemporary adornment, from paper to metal, allows me to work through my understanding of the existence of “place” and my connection to it.
