The souvenir connecting to the luggage I bring and make. Works made while thinking about travel, pilgrimage and displacement on a momentary level. Something magical, something concrete; Auckland, Cleveland; freedom and faimly comitments. And the link to the body, well that is still in the works.
The way that I see it…
Jewellery is the physical manifestation or representation of a relationship.
Instead of a gallery or commercial space, I am making relationships to put my jewellery into.
I am crafting relationships.
I want my work to create relationships.
