I am interested in the discreet codes and signals embedded in our everyday lives. Understanding these codes affords us the opportunity to connect with others, but more often than not we misread the signs. I see jewellery as part of this signalling process. We wear jewellery to direct and deflect the gaze of the viewer towards or away from specific areas of our bodies, we place markers on ourselves and our partners, claiming our territory, pledging our allegiance or admitting surrender. With this in mind, my choice of material - scrap fabric from the flag-making industry - is integral to my work.
