I find it interesting when people explore their background and express their experiences in jewellery. Take a look at these pieces of work. Debbie Adamson writes about her work “I once heard that we can get to know ourselves through the things we make. I think this is a process that never ends, and this work is part of that journey. These pieces continue an exploration of my Pakeha identity in post-colonial New Zealand. Using my rural background as reference, I have chosen specific materials and responded to them. I pull apart, play, and push them to form new identities – reconfigurations that move away from but still speak of their origins.”
