We went to the Sheffield Hallam Exhibition to see Emily Pilsworths work, who is a good friend! she has just finished on a Jewellery Design Degree and here is her work!
each bead can be torn off and eaten, and when they are all gone, all the silver drops to the bottom and leaves a beautiful necklace.The concept of her work i think was dealing with permanent and disposable materials, how jewellery is seen as very valuable and mixing this with a material that is very temporary e.g. dough. some of the inspiration came from candy necklaces where children eat all the beads and left with a piece of elastic, well here she has made rings and necklaces and decorated them with silver and dough. The idea is a tear and shear one, where a group of 6 can wear these pieces and eat the bread that they hold and still be left with a piece of contemporary jewellery.
