The Immortality of an Ephemeral Existence
To remember something is not to see how it was in truth, but rather how you would prefer to see it. Memories become deformed entities that evolve with time. My work touches upon how we prolong the lives of individuals who have passed through exploring the personal relationship an individual can hold with a remaining symbol of character in this case, jewellery. Jewellery can be more than an adornment - it can be an heirloom which carries the memory and character of an individual. It is through this legacy that one's short life becomes 'immortalised'.
