#1

Admin I have a desire to create, manipulate and reinterpret jewellery, this is exceptionally critical along with my artistic will. My strong determination to become a jewellery designer has inspired my practice. Jewellery is a fascinating artistic field with a powerful historical background and symbolism. It is my inspiration and destiny.

I continuously pursue and maintain conceptual content throughout the practice. As a minimalist, I capture simplicity, flexibility, and sometimes beauty in adornment. The style of design includes the importance of lines and shapes of objects and in their movement on the body.

My current research focuses on technological aspects of jewellery making. This includes softwares such as photoshop and rhino CAD. They support the incorporation of digital applications with the established traditional 2D drawing. After studying rendering on papers with different materials, I approach the 3D modeling with the technical skills I’ve acquired. I’m making sure that this opportunity of art making becomes a significant merit in my future innovative and creative practice.

The piece is chased after going through casting process, giving more depth into it. The crane in the front and the pin wheel image relate to each other in terms of freedom. Tubing holds the ruby, accentuating the general aesthetic appearance.
