These brooches are from a series called High Tech/Low Tech. They investigate the combination of historical and innovative materials and processes.
All brooches relate to letting go of the past (galvanised steel pod & felt form) and highlight the beginning of new relationships (laser engraved enamelled pod forms). Through the combination of metal and ornamentation I wish to visually represent the struggle or ties one can have when trying to move forward and the beauty of “letting go”.
