- The first piece was experimental, as I wanted to try out the wax – I hope to stitch back into this piece to make it link to my concept.
- The second piece was inspired by the personal possessions of my peers, as the majority were most sentimentally attached to their rings. I was also inspired after speaking to my Auntie, as she was telling me about a friend who can’t get rid of her wedding ring, eventhough it has negative connotations (she is divorced now). I think it is interesting that sentimental possessions aren’t always associated with happy memories. This helped me to choose my colours, as the orange background (colour associated with divorce) juxtaposes well with the white rings (representing marriage).
