The Pill Bracelet - Popping Pills Like Candy.

One of my degree show pieces, made out of silver and paracetamol, this bracelet creates an aesthetically pleasing form with a lot of meaning behind it. It suggests that painkillers should be treated with the same respect as precious stones, mainly because over-dosing causes severe liver damage and other conditions.

My jewellery addresses to medical issues which normally would not be related the typical jewellery designers interests.

With the degree show just around the corner, it is about the time to post a few things about my up-coming collection!

"The Destruction Series", electroformed paracetamol tablets, which show the process of destruction of one's body if addicted to pain killers. Self medication is an extremely big issue for our society and this series of precious objects visualizes this problem.
