jewellery on the brink of a realtionship

My work focuses on jewellery that explores alternative forms of exchange between maker and wearer.  This project, ‘jewellery on the brink of a relationship’, functions as homage.  Each fortnight for a year, one of twenty-six unique pieces will land on the doorstep of a different artist or thinker who has provided me with inspiration.
A thank you note implies a relationship.  In my circumstance the relationship up to this point has often been one sided.  This project attempts to scramble the current paradigm where one person makes and the other observes.  In this case, both parties function as giver and receiver and as maker and viewer.   It is an experiment in interchange and initiating relationships.

I will document the progress here  http://jewelleryonthebrink.blogspot.com/

Hurray its done.
