Splendor Ornatus

My collection investigates the idea of adorning the body with jewellery; placement, quantity and scale. How the painters in the 18th century portrayed women of the time wearing their most precious clothes and flaunting themselves with expensive boastful jewellery and precious stones inspires me. The thought of ”wearing everything” to show status and wealth is alluring.

How far can we go until it’s too much?
