Inspired by Tribal jewellery and the African Masai, this debut collection 'A Skin Less Ordinary' intricately explores beading, braiding and the manipulation of everyday textiles, such as hosiery. The result is a collection that blends together an organic and futuristic style, as high-octane minerals juxtapose against nude coloured sculptural forms.
A chunky statement necklace handcrafted from 40 denier tights in ‘Natural’ and ‘American Tan’ and woven through with a swirl of petroleum purple hematine cubes. Finished off with soft flower-head like ends, a gold plated keyring-style attachment and braided loop adds a luxurious utilitarian touch.
