I always get inspirations from everyday objects, and I quite enjoy the process of exploring their forms and materials and reimagining them into a fashion jewellery context and the fashion accessories artifact in the broadest sense. I believe the perception of an object can be altered when the object is redesigned, so in my point of view, anything can become a piece of jewellery or artifact. My final degree collection examines linking and connections which integrating 3D print, CNC, stone cutting, casting and plating. Drawing inspiration from contemporary manufacturing processes and everyday mass produced objects, my final project is concerned with the concept of reimagining familiar machined objects, such as manufactured tools, components and fittings, into a fine jewellery context to creates a multi-referential content and reinvests the objects with new meanings.
Tool + Process
Tool + Material
Tool + Body of the craftsman
