Dangerous Beauty 2013

About this project

This collection explored the relationship between beauty - drawing us in, but also often deceiving us, or drawing us towards danger.

I used the beautiful forms of dangerous jellyfish as inspiration to create this series. The jewels are each centred around individually hand cast rubber beads, set into protective shields or shells, but with dangerous tails following on behind.
