Thoughts On Jewellery
Jewellery can be understood as reflecting the values of the wearer as well as the society that produces and validates it. Jewellery presents a complexity of meaning through its historical density, its cultural diversity, its symbols, its materials and its forms. Jewellery opens a dialogue between the public and private sphere, between a community and an individual, between the wearer and the viewer. This rich complexity presents a strong foundation upon which to build and excavate while exploring relevance and meaning.
