The Relationship Between Movement and Colour
When groups of jellyfish move together in the same space, and tentacles of different colours intertwine, the combinations produce interesting colour effects.
My work is concerned with the ability of jewellery to adapt to the moving body and how this movement can result in interesting colour effects.
As a jewellery designer, I am particularly interested in how the movement of the pieces affect the way their colour is perceived. I interrogate this relationship between colour and movement by creating pieces that will be able to follow, or go along with, the natural movement of the wearer’s body. In my mind there is a close relationship between jewellery and the human body, so I make jewellery that is interactive. Visual qualities, in terms of colour, will therefore be constantly changing through the effect of movement.
