Quote of the day

Quote of the dayLove this quote by Alexander McQueen. Reminds me a lot about my brother. His studio is full of boxes with loads of bits and bobs, broken pieces etc. which he likes incorporating into his creations. Looking at those particles makes me think that once they were wanted and led a “luxury lifestyle” by adorning someone, but later ended up in one’s drawer or box ready to be thrown away … Some of these pieces look so ‘tired’ I can hardly imagine they could get a second lease of life and once again become a part of something beautiful. But yet somehow (with my brother’s help), they find their way into a jewellery piece…

A statement bangle made of new and re-claimed components found during countless trips to antique markets.
