Innate and immanent, the impulse to adorn lies deep within us and manifests in many ways. The parallels between architectural adornment and the tradition of body decoration are distinct.
The motivation for ornamental design on projecting parts of buildings corresponds to the decoration of the human nose and ears. Our tendency to embellish and protect the weaker elements in a structure is comparable to our human instinct to decorate ankles, wrists and necks.
The natural desire to embellish initially extended from the traditions of body adornment and manifested into our surroundings. This collection of jewellery, heavily inspired by structural adornment, reflects that notion.
