About Katherine Richmond
My jewellery explores the fragile relationship between people and objects. I use books as a symbol of permanence and longevity to create wearable objects with a fragility that questions traditional notions of wear-ability. As an item worn close to the body, jewellery contains a strong emotional and physical relationship to the wearer and its small scale makes it the ideal collectible item. My work challenges values of permanence and stability by embracing the beauty of the imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.
