Artist Statement

I am drawn to the concept of amulets as a symbolic object. My intention is to evoke people's understanding of differences and a sense of beauty, which transcends their immediate environment and cultural background based on people's stories and feelings.

My technique combines metal, fabric, stones and stitching, inspired by traditional English embroidery and the Japanese amulet symbol of omamori - created as a jewellery piece. Omamori is a decorative pouch made of fabric with embroidered patterns and symbolic knots from Temples and shrines in Japan. Through use of materials I explore textures, designs and patterns derived from English and Japanese cultures.

By wearing the jewellery on their body, the physical connection with the object adds meaning and significance to the wearer. I aspire to integrate physical, emotional and spiritual experiences through jewellery as a medium.
