Hidden Damage

About this project

For me mirrors represent the presented self. A literal reflection of how we wish to be seen, hiding beneath the surface is our true selves. By using whole, broken, and repaired mirrors, this collection explores the different stages of mental health and the pressure to present a perfect image of yourself, when inside you are broken. Using the Kintsugi technique of repairing with gold, I have created pieces of jewellery which show the beauty in the broken.
