Genevieve is an award winning designer/maker from Dublin, Ireland, who graduated with a Degree in Metals and Jewellery from the National College of Art and Design in 2015. She is also an accomplished musician interested in combining her skills as a designer with her passion and love for music. Her initial collection fuses elements from both of these areas into a series of innovative jewellery designs. Genevieve translates pieces of music into tactile and wearable forms. She makes musical sculptures using new technologies such as laser cutting combined with traditional handmade and metalwork techniques.
My current work challenges the idea of transforming music into visual and three dimensional forms. Being a musician myself, I have played and listened to music from a young age. The possibility of translating a piece of music that is personal into a tactile and wearable medium excites me.
My initial collection is inspired by pieces of music that I have played as a musician, which have enriched and given meaning to my life. I create my own form of graphic notation from the traditional musical scores of these pieces. I then stack the graphic shapes like staves and roll them up like scrolls of music to create statement wearable pieces
