JEWELLERY

"WABI SABI" Jewellery
simple…..honest…..noble,

...made from non precious metals, materials and found objects,

in the tradition of ‘wabi sabi’, the Zen Buddhist philosophy

of finding beauty in imperfection and in the everyday.

‘My jewellery embodies respect for things which are old, recycled, rustic, and weathered. These ‘things’ have a history – a time, place and purpose of origin and a connection with previous owners and their needs. They ‘talk’ to me- whispering tales of mystery and intrigue. Using non precious metals and materials, and a strong and simple sense of design, I give my found objects a new lease on life. They become special, but not precious – to be worn and enjoyed for however long is appropriate – maybe only a day, maybe a year, or maybe a lifetime. Above all else, the re-presentation of an everyday object in a new and sometimes controversial setting, invites the wearer and the viewer alike to re-evaluate the meaning of object in relation to self, to others, and to the world in which we live’.

This latest body of work is available from Rosebed St Art Gallery, Eudlo
