Of a Jewel

Silver dust


Ineffable conditions one cannot express in words, for they refer to aspects of existence too abstract to be adequately communicated. Ineffability can be described by what it is not, rather than by what it is.

Capturing glimpses of the ineffable in jewellery necessitates dematerialisation, allowing beauty and value to move away from the qualities and expressions given to the material, into a more abstract realm. The ephemeral appearance of this jewellery inspires the unsettling play of an undefinable possession.
