I am designing and making jewellery for younger men around the topic of masculinity today. By questioning masculine identity through the manipulation of traditional masculine iconography, With the intention of opening up communication . Inspired by anonymous conversations with men as well as contextual research. I have used humour as a tool to approach the subject. I have also created a collective portrait of the men I have spoken too about masculinity and what it should mean.
Within this project I have used traditional silversmithing techniques as well as using modern technology to aid in the design and productions my work.
