About the Collection

Inspired by the images of oppression recorded by journalists and protesters during the Tiananmen Square demonstration, Tank is a visual protest against symbols of violent culture.

The collection is built around intricate sculptures of a tank, crushed beneath the weight of a South Sea pearl.  Inversely imagining the metal of the tank as destructed rather than destructive, the jewellery considers the troubling ways in which cultural presentations of violence intersect with the aesthetic, the ways in which we beautify suffering.  The result is a thoughtful collection with a mesmerising quality of craftsmanship.
