I’m greatly influenced by ethnic jewellery from around the globe. The variety in history that can be found is amazing. The use of precious and semi precious materials together with fabrics, seeds, leather, feathers, glass etc is fascinating.
Jewellery can be used as a form of body adornment or as a form of identity or even instead of money for bartering. The diversity in value and meaning of jewellery both historically and today is so engaging I can only be inspired by it.
Look out for future posts on ethnic jewellery as I feel inspired to write more.
