 Insert selfie here and Magic Merlin, Rings
Sterling silver, paper, ink
4, 7.5cm x 2, 5cm x

In my work I explore current issues society faces in playful
ways. ‘Insert selfie here’ and ‘Magic Merlin’ are reinterpretations of ancient mythological narratives into contemporary jewellery objects. In these works I was inspired by Edward Burne-Jones painting ‘The Beguiling of Merlin’ and the Greek mythological figure ‘Narcissus’. The works respond to these myths and the rings are objects for considering magic in our everyday lives and the modern day obsession with social media and selfie culture.
