THE PLINTH

THE JEWELLERY WORLD IS SHAPED BY PRECONCEPTIONS. THESE INEVITABLY FORM CONVENTIONAL JEWELLERY, PRIMARILY AS ACCESSORY OR BODY ADORNMENT. WHEN JEWELLERY IS NOT WORN IT IS PLACED IN A BOX, DRAWER OR OTHER ENCAPSULATING PRECIOUS CONTAINER. IT BECOMES INVISIBLE AND OBSCURED FROM FURTHER ADMIRATION.

THROUGHOUT MY JEWELLERY I STRIVE TO PROVOKE THESE PRECONCEPTIONS; TO MAKE THE WEARER AND VIEWER RE-EVALUATE THE PERCEPTION OF WHAT JEWELLERY IS AND THE VALUE OF ITS USE.

EACH PIECE HAS A DUAL QUALITY; THE ABILITY TO BE WORN, YET SIMULTANEOUSLY DOES NOT REQUIRE A BODY TO BE COMPLETE. WHEN NOT WORN THE PLINTH GIVES THE JEWELLERY A SCULPTURAL QUALITY. IT INHABITS A SPACE TO BE ADMIRED PURELY AS A SCULPTURE.
