Sound in Jewellery
The human voice consists of many frequencies; the uniqueness of a voice comes from the composition of these frequencies
I've always had an interest in organic and manufactured aesthetics - the balance of nature and industry with science as the common denominator. You can see this reflected in my current collection with the use of flowing patterns and stark geometries. Another concept that embodies these themes is Harmonic Jewellery: the representation of sound in visual form.
When creating a visual representation of sound there are two different approaches. You can look at the volume, or the frequencies. The latter is where we begin. The human voice consists of many frequencies; the uniqueness of a voice comes from the composition of these frequencies: a Harmonic Fingerprint. You'll notice that whether somebody is whispering, shouting, singing or ranting, you can always recognise their voice. This, in part, is because the Harmonic Fingerprint always stays the same. It is therefore a perfect starting point for creating a unique representation of a voice.
So, after years of research and development, and with a fair bit of help from friends - I have made something that can take the physical principles behind a voice and turn them into a piece of Jewellery. With all the maths, science and technology that goes into making a product like this it's quite nice that it just boils down to nice looking shapes.
