This series of brooches is my take on floral jewellery. But rather than using the imagery of flowers and plants I used the way they react to light. It is based on flowers which bloom during daytime, a reaction called ‘photoperiodism’.
The brooches look monochrome in a dimly lit environment but when you shine light on them, or rotate them towards a light source through a rotating mechanism in the back, a coloured shape made out of light appears on the white surface and the brooch begins to ‘bloom’
