  • Crown Jewels UK Rings

    Collaboration with Dutch designer Lex Pott to release a UK version of his crown jewels rings. Coins represent a real versus a nominal value. History shows that ancient coins represented a real value of the material. Currently value is based on agreements. This project shows the transformation of function and value related to the material. Coins are reduced to an outline showing their new value as being jewellery / rings. This everyday object is reshaped and re-purposed to create an entirely different item using a small intervention.The aim of the project is to create a collection of jewellery linked to the tradition of crown jewels that now become accessible to everyone and open the discussion on value of material.
