Until the Daybreak serves as a narrative tribute to Daisy Hooper, a lady whose personal belongings I found at a flea market, hidden within a 1950s handbag. The Light Switch Rings are inspired by the concept of “functional concealment." The initial inspiration of these pieces is outlined below...
“At a Sunday morning antiques market I came across a 1950s handbag filled with photographs, identity cards, birth certificates, stamps, tickets and other personal documents belonging to a woman named Daisy Hooper. The handbag was an emotive time capsule; I was inspired to tell a story about Daisy through some of the objects that were personal to her. Assuming that one of the photographs depicted Daisy’s bedroom, (see image attached) I created jewellery that would inhabit and interact with the objects shown within the image: A bangle hidden in a picture frame and a ring within antique light switch casing. The jewellery not only exists within the objects, but is also designed to be protected by them. Each piece is provided with a bespoke home and, in turn, a cunning means to fool a burglar. Daisy’s belongings inspired new creations, which carry memories of the past. I hope that in years to come, these pieces will become heirlooms in their own right.”
A bespoke and interactive, prop-based piece with an Art Deco influence,
The Light Switch Rings have moveable switches and fit within their Light Switch Case. I designed the Light Switch Cases to provide a protective 'home' for the rings and in turn exist as a bespoke jewellery box for them. The last place a burglar would look to find your jewels, is inside a light switch case after all!
