I’m interested in jewelry in relation to the pressure society places on women: we’re supposed to present a flawless appearance no matter how broken we might feel inside. Jewelry is often an accessory used to enhance the look of strength and perfection. But is this the truth of who we really are? Shouldn’t we wear jewelry that is personal, reflects our true self and empowers it? To create truly personal jewelry, I believe one has to design pieces that reflect our perfect imperfections.
