BA (Hons) Fashion Jewellery
I am eager to explore different materials, skills and modes to challenge boundaries of what defines jewellery. For me, jewellery design can be a new way to explore new methods of relating awareness of the body and emotion. I always get a lot of inspiration from investigating people. Jewellery can be a way of communicating emotion between people. This project is concerned with the acceptance of acquired physical disability and social attitudes towards personal appearance. The process of psychosocial adjustment following an acquired disability has been viewed as a sequence of stages (Fortier & Wanlass, 1984), similar to those experienced during the grief associated with one's imminent death or the loss of a loved one (Kubler- Ross, 1969). The five stages of the Kübler-Ross stage model are the best-known description of the emotional and psychological responses that many people experience when faced with an illness or life- changing situation. I hope to change the way that people perceive disability – I aim to enable people to empathize with the experience of others who have a disability. I design a collection of jewellery pieces based on the 5 stages of grief that encourage empathy and allow us to embrace and experience diversity.
