WENDY SARAH PACEY

Works with perspex and metallic foils. Workshop, Hastings in Sussex.

Artist's Statement

The main motivation of my work is to bring a sense of preciousness to plastic jewellery. I have always thought plastic, though not inherently precious, to be a beautiful material. My jewellery is made from a composite of clear and coloured acrylic, and metallic foils. It is made by a unique technical process, which I have developed through experimentation of materials. The result is rich in pattern and texture, and iridesces with vibrant colours. The smooth, curved surfaces and simple, bold shapes allow the light to reflect and refract, giving the depth and luminosity of a precious gem. Stainless steel wire adds technical interest to the pieces by using the natural spring to create tension claspings. Some cling gently to the body, whilst others form shapes that open to allow the body to pass through, thus enclosing it.
