Interaction and versatility are two of the most important aspects of my work. I like the wearer to be able to adapt pieces to suit their mood and environment.
Setting magnets within the resin provides a way of changing each piece easily. The repelling action of the magnets can also be used to create elements which seem to float.
Colour is obviously very important to my work. Layering translucent resin over opaque helps achieve a richer finish and a more varied colour range. The different layers of resin can also provide added depth to the surface. By patterning either one or both layers I can produce differing effects.
I perceive each piece as a wearable toy. Hopefully the playability and versatility of them will surprise and amuse those who desire a diversion from everyday stress and boredom.
