Maker's statement

This piece is the first in a new body of work concerned with the interaction and relationship of objects to each other, both physically and visually. In the case of neckpiece(s), the objects physically interlock whilst not being worn; thus also allowing the cords to play a more fundamental role, both on and off the body.
