Fern is fascinated with a human’s temptation to touch and play; therefore, tactile urge plays an integral role within her jewellery, if not with interactive elements then with contrasting material qualities. The outcomes are vivid, fun, mixed media structures that enhance the role of the wearer to active participant, unhindered by the conventional qualities of jewellery.
“I aim to create a moment of joy and intrigue”
Fern takes an intuitive approach to the making of her work, developing the designs through hands on experimentation. The designs have a post-modern aesthetic with vibrant colour and geometric form, screaming out for fun engagement.
“I play with material qualities, colour and form to create pieces that are vivid and full of life”
Fern’s pieces are childishly sophisticated from vibrant sharps of crayon in tactile resin forms to pieces that provide opportunity for interaction from drawing with crayon to weaving through a maze; all providing that uniquely fun relationship between jewellery and owner.
