“I use jewellery design in order to interrogate my hybrid identity. I rely on my own cultural identity in order to address and visualize issues of xenophobia, multiculturalism, place and displacement. I create jewellery pieces and sculptural pieces that speak about these topical and complex issues of identity that young Zimbabwean’s currently face. I utilise African relics because it relates to my own identity as design inspiration and reinvent these relics in an innovative way, through the use of a diverse range of materials, such as wood, silver, resin and more.”
