These brooches were made by my friend and colleague Paula Lindblom, from Sweden. They are made with layers of graffiti collected from her neighbourhood which are altered with materials such as glass beads. I met up with Paula last summer when she visited London and we swapped work, I got one of these brooches......
"I think this graffiti pieces are very interesting, if you think about it,
it’s one person per each layer in this painting piece… so in one piece of
jewellery many people have been involved, I think that it’s an interesting
thought and I like the idea that so many layer is the same numbers of people who
has made one of this pieces... an absolutely urban pieces."
