Vivienne Westwood’s Armour Ring.

Vivienne Westwood's Armour Ring.7ef84127fbf56b8a1d4bb454cf7acf2e

Market Research for my third university project Body Extensions.
I based this project on shells; fibonacci and the repetition in structure to create a more hard, protective exterior. When working in metal I produced multiple aluminium strips bent over and joint together, exploring movement, different ways to attach each piece and different methods of creating textures and surface patterns – which resulted in a series of small samples looking extremely similar to Vivienne Westwoods armour ring. I’m not too big on jewellery and I prefer things to be sparkly and colourful, so while this isn’t something I would typically look at it’s interesting how the work I have produced, driven from the word ‘protect’ and looking at sea creatures mostly is so similar to this ring that is inspired by armour, protecting the human body.
