In my current project, ‘Lust in Found’, I combine both of my passions by making wearable, fillable skips.  These manifest themselves as brooches and neckpieces.  

 

My gold and yellow skips encourage interaction by urging the wearer to mix and match the ‘rubbish’ to their mood on any given day.

 

The wearer is, thus, transformed into the curator of their own jewellery.
