Through the feldspar

This range of 31 pieces is an exploration of materials. The starting point of my collection was the stone labradorite.  I explored possible materials, which replicated the labradorite’s qualities. I also used labradorite in juxtaposition with the hand crafted stones as to create a comparison of what is precious and challenge the onlooker’s view of value.

I find labradorite fascinating and this is because it reminds me of a planet or galaxy in space. So in conjunction with the labradorite I drew inspiration from planets moons comets and asteroids, which influenced the shape, texture and wear ability of the pieces.

My assortment has a few main pieces that adorn the body, but the rest clip onto the focal jewellery much like charms or trinkets. This gives the wearer an interactive piece that can change every time you wear it.
