Woven Armour (Mask)

The jewellery concept stems from Celtic weaving designs. This idea of meditative process. I spun this simple idea into my own mythology story about my dad who was a blacksmith, and that when Alliyah was made she was born out of the flames and her powers became a more effeminate version of his craftsmanship. It’s about how jewellery and wire weaving is like female armour, that it’s more hidden in the everyday wearing, that female craft can be harnessed to empower women. It’s like armour she’s made to protect herself from whatever might have happened due to toxic masculinity or masc agendas. It’s a way of embedding metal craft of women in history as well and re-interpreting masc armour in context for femme traits and celebrating these.
