Bling! is a series of clothing and textile necklaces that explore issues of consumption. Clusters of fabricated gems playfully question socially constructed western perceptions of, and the drive for, status and power perceived in objects that are often created or derived from geo-politically and socio-economically disenfranchised sectors of the global population.
This series of necklaces have been featured on renowned design sites including Mocoloco, Design You Trust, TheMag and selected as one of Trendhunters top 65 statement necklaces. Bling! was initially launched in 2009, as a solo exhibition at Centre in Hamilton, Canada, and has been exhibited in various art galleries in Toronto and Hamilton.
