Frances Wadsworth-jones



Drawing inspiration from Japanese aesthetics, my work seeks beauty in the ephemeral realities of nature. However, its function as a memento mori is secondary to it being a playful celebration of the small things we often disregard as unpleasant or unimportant. At the boundary between repulsion and seduction, my work explores the tension we feel when the ugly becomes beautiful. Things are rarely as they seem, with each piece demanding closer inspection, or hands-on exploration, to reveal its full meaning and beauty.

There is a website on its way which I would imagine will give a better flavour, her necklaces are so delicate and cleverly constructed to see them in the flesh is a must.
