'Assemble' Collection from The Enticement of Everyday Objects

About this project

Inspired by Victorian Chatelaines, an item worn to reflect status and control, which held useful everyday items such as keys, scissors, thimbles and watches. Each item on my modern day chatelaine has an element of movement allowing the wearer to play and explore the piece. Through chains and hooks each element can be interchanged or worn separately highlighting the importance of the users choice within my work.

'Chatelaine'
Photographer: Francesca Lobb
Inspired by Victorian Chatelaines this piece allows each individual pendant to hang together as one. The look of the piece can be altered by the wearer as each item is interchangeable highlighting the importance of personal choice. Each pendant can also be unhooked and worn individually if so desired by the user.
