My jewellery series ‘Go with the Glow’ is largely inspired by the brilliant colours and sensuous movements of sea creatures like the jellyfish and sea anemones. The concept of my work aims to explore a multi-sensory wearing experience in jewellery which involves different sensory perceptions such as visual enjoyment, tactility and sound. My exotic jewels are designed to appeal to the hand and ear as well as the eye. For example, The beads mounted on their moving nylon wires are irresistibly tempting to touch, and all the pieces create subtle sounds as they move with the body.
My fascination with dance culture, laser light shows and stage performances have encouraged me to add a further visual dimension to my work. I experiment with ultraviolet-reactive nylon and fluorescent paint which combine to produce a remarkable intensity of colour when the jewellery is lit with UV light. The fluorescent effect of the jewels provides pleasurable visual enjoyment for both wearers and viewers.
