Lauren Simeoniâ€™s work is a homage to the senses - a wearable passport to a whimsical â€˜otherâ€™ reality, finding the beautiful and seductive in what is otherwise thought of as mundane. The rich colours and textures of these found objects are important triggers of inspiration, and a limited pallet provides more possibilities. Her work toys with mass-production processes and she frequently reconfigures mass produced objects to create interactive conceptual jewellery.
