ARTIST STATEMENT

Historic and present day ceremonies, rituals and superstitions connected to jewellery as signifier inform my work. For this neckpiece, titled, Welcome, I employ the repetitive and time-consuming process of embossing and threading hundreds of paper discs. The form and technique of this neckpiece references the traditional garlands found across many cultures, given to an individual as a symbol of welcome. I offer this neckpiece, not to an individual but collectively to the idea of expanding acceptance and a deeper understanding in us all.
