Jewellery hand made process is at once a physical engagement with material, and at the same time a temporal act brimming with nuance and symbolism. This work investigates re-citing jewellery process, specifically filing or sanding. Almost every act of jewellery making is punctuated with filing or sanding. Cut, file, sand, solder, pickle, sand,
It is a process of wearing away, removing, coercing, it is multiple and recurrent.
This work was bourn out of a jeweller’s perspective and inspired by a text by Fabio Morábito.
