Often playfully involving the viewer and wearer to interact with the jewellery: MAKING FACES is a series of necklaces made of plastic and porcelain that are activated by The Jewellery Playbook, a publication in which their multiple appearances are revealed. Her approach to making is multidisciplinary: an integral aspect of her practice is framing and contextualising her works through the making of exhibitions and artist publications. Working in collaboration with photographers, graphic designers and writers she places her jewellery and object-based works in a broader context that shows how these are worn, used and displayed in everyday life.
