Blue, like the works of the painter David Hockney immediatly evoke in me a sense of freshness and sixties pop. As Hockney was drawn to the colours and swimming pools of California I similarly was attracted to this most intoxicating of colours after watching The Swimmer* by Frank Perry.
Taking The Swimmer* as my starting point I began to experiment on how I could fuse this colour palette of sky and neon blue, black onix and transparent with materials such as glass, preserved natural roses and clear PVC.
Crossing elements and inspirations from cinema, art and design I have woven together a collection of jewelry interconnected through infinite shades of ‘BLUE’.
I’m swimming home.
Pool by pool, they form a river all the way to our house. *
