Rebecca Maddock. Project title: ‘This is Knot Jewellery.’ Description: silver, stainless steel and 100% human hair. Statement: ‘My sculptural jewellery combines human hair and metal. The concept centres around the change in value hair undergoes when shed from the body; from adored for it’s beauty to vile and discarded. Hair is an integral part of our personalities, it is intrinsically linked with our growth and fragility as human beings. Each finished piece is named for the person who donates the hair. The viewer and wearer are intended to feel both delight and discomfort with the work. The pieces vary in scale and consist of minimalist silver and stainless steel wire structures accented by felted spheres of hair.’
