Nutre Arayavanish

My Jewellery is concerned with the transformation of drawings from two dimensions into three-dimensional forms. The pieces were made by connecting each flat components together, unit by unit, to create forms in different principles like slotting, layering or folding through repetition of one identical unit.
My most influence about unit connection and also other elements in my work such as shape, form and colours are all from my own culture(Thai) as we create things by using this way.
 To express my idea about dimensional transformation, I explore the relationship between maker, jewellery and wearer in order to encourage the wearer to engage more with my pieces apart from wearing them and people perception or reaction to my jewellery when presented to them in different states of existence, both pre-constructed and constructed to create my own tradition of wearing jewellery and bring new experience to wearers and viewers.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 2 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
