What Is Precious?

A collection challenging what we see as a precious material. This strong collection came as a direct response to Amy’s experiences showcasing her Chains and Brutalist collections. Whilst exhibiting the collections she found so many visitors were afraid of her work, afraid to wear such a common material. The conversations Amy had sparked a great interest in, why? Why does this common material cause such a response, what is so different about wearing cement, than wearing a gemstone?

The designs are inspired by the styles and shapes found in traditional gem stone jewellery. The predominant materials found in this collection are cement, brass and silver.
