Courtney SIMPSON

My body of work is purposefully intended to be inclusive and involves the consideration and acknowledgement of people with specific disabilities. Through my designs, I illustrate that jewellery can play an important role in empowering people with disabilities and to bring about the enjoyment of wearing jewellery through the use of other senses. I show that jewellery can be appreciated in a unique way as well as be functional and purposeful.

My aim is to create designs to give people with the disabilities the opportunity and ease to wear jewellery with independence and style.

As a further benefit my designs will hopefully influence the jewellery industry to broaden their creativity and design jewellery in a way that is inclusive of all people and to allow people with disabilities to have the same choices as those who are abled.
