As a Jeweller and Silversmith, I seek to make valuable objects inspired by elements of our past. ‘Precious Threads’ is a series of jewellery pieces which incorporate found linen threads and spools on sterling silver and other metals.
Through juxtaposition and combinations of materials, I encourage viewers to perceive value in discarded and forgotten objects, once precious to our people and economy. These intimate and wearable works are to remind us of our rich and precious textile heritage and encourage a conversation of its importance once more.
