Posted September 23, 2018 06:01:18While his work can be seen as an antidote to the current economic crisis, artist Andrew Moore has crafted a bracelet with a message for the future.
“This bracelet is for me to express that I am in love with jewellery,” he said.
“It will have a lot of words written on it.
I hope it’s the start of a long relationship with the jewellery industry, or that I’ll meet someone with the same ideas about jewellery.”
Mr Moore’s artworks have been exhibited at the National Museum of Australia, and he has also created a series of handmade bracelets in partnership with The Artisanal Society of Australia.
“I started out as a fashion designer.
I didn’t really have a particular interest in jewellery, but I got a really good understanding of how the jewellers make the jewels and the processes that go into making them, and I wanted to try and create something that would be a little more personal,” he explained.”
My work has taken me a long way from that.
I’ve created some very simple things that are just very simple but really express a lot about what it means to be a jeweller.”
Mr Jones said he wanted his work to express the idea of being in love.
“The message of this bracelet is that you can love and love and have a wonderful relationship, but you can’t have a beautiful and perfect relationship,” he joked.
“You can’t be perfect, you can only love.”‘
I just want to be loved’Mr Jones also created his own style of bracelet, which features a rose-patterned design, a floral motif, a rainbow-patterning pattern and a butterfly.
“There are just a lot more colours on this bracelet, and it just seems to have more and more patterns, and more and the pattern is just really beautiful, so I wanted it to be something that just was a little bit more personal, more like a wedding ring,” he added.
“What I like about it is that I just want everyone to be able to feel it, to feel that they can love this bracelet as much as I can love it.”
So I’ve tried to take it a little further.
It’s got a lot less lines, so you can just wear it like a regular bracelet.
“Mr Smith said the bracelets are part of an ongoing art project.”
We’re just taking a lot, a lot from different places and trying to bring it to the next level,” he commented.”
For example, I have been experimenting with different ways to represent the colors in the bracelet and I just wanted to take that further.
I just love it.
“The artist has previously worked with the National Gallery of Australia and the Sydney Museum of Art, and also designed a bracelet for the Australian Olympic Team.”
To be honest, I’m not really sure what I’m going to do with this,” Mr Smith said.
