I was rifling through a pile of some old articles the other day, and I found one I'd torn out from object magazine, featuring the breathtaking work of jeweller warwick freeman. Each piece of jewellery he's designed is so beautiful and simple in terms of form, material and idea. What's also amazing is seeing them together. Like symbols from a universal language, they reveal a story we somehow all understand. "I don't know if you'd call it a form of cultural critique, but I'm interested in jewellery's emblematic role in representing cultural identity." A noble goal, that in my opinion, is more than achieved in freeman's remarkable work.
