Intro
Louise Perrone is a Canadian Jewellery Artist who works with materials derived from domestic and industrial waste, employing techniques that combine the traditions of goldsmithing and hand sewing to explore the values attributed to traditional women's work. Born in London, England, Perrone holds a Bachelor of Art in Sculpture from the Nottingham Trent University, a Post Graduate Certificate in Art and Design Education from the University of Brighton and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Jewellery and Metals from Alberta College of Art and Design. A recipient of several awards including the Governor General of Canada’s Academic Medal and the Alberta College of Art and Design Alumni Legacy award, Perrone’s work has been exhibited in Canada, the USA and Europe. As an active participant in the jewellery community, Perrone has served as President of the Vancouver Metal Arts Association and Co-Chair of the Society of North American Goldsmiths Exhibition In Motion. She lives and works in Vancouver, Canada, teaching in the Jewellery Department of LaSalle College and making jewellery in her studio. 
 

Statement

The wearable objects I make are rooted in the traditions of goldsmithing and textile techniques employed by women. Formally, my work references the products of these two disciplines, such as jewellery, regalia, quilts and pin cushions. My process involves a transformation of material, just as the act of wearing jewellery can transform an individual, playing on the notion of the jeweller as an alchemist. Many of my pieces are made from clothing, for instance, the necktie, an assumed indication of masculine authority. This gendered accessory is transformed into a new object with a different meaning through my handwork. The manner that we choose to dress is just one example of the many discreet codes and signals embedded in society that can lead to preconceived judgements regarding gender and status. My use of flag fabric references the concept of jewellery as a signifier that equips the wearer with the ability to direct and deflect the gaze of the viewer. Wedding rings, political pins and service medals are all markers that we place on ourselves and each other. We use jewellery to define our boundaries, claim our territory, pledge our allegiance or admit surrender.
