I have created an ephemeral jewellery collection inspired by my fascination with the physical change between liquid and solid states. The jewellery is made from caramelised sugar which I have manipulated into abstract shapes, before allowing each piece to cool into a permanent solid. I then took each one and sprayed it with chrome coloured paint, creating a beautiful precious appearance. The metallic façade also enhances the idea of fluidity of the organic shapes, as well as creating a transient sealant layer, coating the sugar with enamel, until an increase in room temperature begins the gradual and inevitable reversion to liquid.
