Kate’s jewellery collection is environmentally sustainable whilst embracing fast-fashion and our throwaway culture. With its high-fashion aesthetic and deliberately short life- span, her work takes its cue from the abundance and constant change of fast-fashion.
Her jewellery, which is made from non-toxic stone “paper”, safely decomposes at the end of its working life, leaving no negative imprint on the environment. In this way, “Future Jewellery” celebrates a positive future for design, allowing space for creativity but removing the guilt of land-fill or environmental damage.
Through re-working the fast-fashion model using sustainable systems, Kate hopes to emphasise that we can meet modern-day consumerism and satisfy the human desire to create, without leaving a deadly legacy for the next generation.
