Wearable art at the V&A!

Aaaah wearable art! This is music to my ears!

This is where I aim to go with my jewellery. To bring together all my disciplines, to return to my sculpture but this time to be worn by the human body.

Today I went to see the work of David Watkins at the V&A where you can have a  retrospective view of his work from 1972 until now. David started out as a jazz musician and a sculptor. His long-spanning career has produced many off-the-wall creations! Wonderful, intelligent, very graphic and geometrical.
