My research explores the role that jewellery plays in symbolically marking the boundary of the body. By bringing ‘retired’ pieces of jewellery back into circulation, I attempt to render participants’ sense of their own boundaries strange and unstable and to explore the range of embodied responses that emerge. New knowledge will centre on how challenges to a cohesive and unified body can also result in non-normative performances of self, and contribute to our understanding of the theoretical construct of body boundary. This is a practice-based project that incorporates methodologies of drawing and making and an exhibition of work, reflecting the findings, will accompany the thesis.

As well as studying – part time – for a PhD, I lecture in Contextual Studies at the School of Jewellery and, as Research Co-ordinator, support staff to develop research projects.
