The Adorned series are a set of stylized images exploring African Jewellery and the Female form. The images celebrate African culture and heritage and use the female form as a source of strength and sensuality. The jewellery used was curated from African designers.As a child I was in awe of the intricate and elaborate jewellery worn but cultural dignitaries, how it expressed their importance and signified their identity. These visuals remained ingrained in my mind and were the inspiration for the Adorned series.
