CARRY WHATS IMPORTANT TO YOU, FORGET THE THINGS YOU LEAVE BEHIND
Finally finished my jewellery assessment, and can now share the fruits of my labour!
Our assessment of work was on the concept of “material possession” and i chose to recycle an old concept of making an adaptable totem that is able to change with the wearer, housing different moments of significance, as the importance of each momento changes.
My aim was to ultimately make a series which embraced the element of change that is an integral part of personal growth and development, communicating a personal need to carry what is important, whilst simultaneously conveying an ability to change, adapt, and replace those things when it becomes necessary to do so.
