Helen Clara Hemsley
ÁFRICA DO SUL
I am inspired by the everyday, the familiar and the collision of culture and form.
Often crafted in mundane materials, my jewellery is a way of communicating the
observations I make, my love of words and sayings, and my incurable need to process and understand the world around me. This results in work that is matter-of-fact, amusing and even silly and light, but always with a twist of critical observation.
I tell stories that are essentially mine, but with a hope that they can also touch others, bring a smile to their faces and get them thinking.
My work is about passion, love and curiosity and it mirrors my desire for answers to endless questions.
