Pendant, 2015, by Lisa Walker

“In an ideal world I would wear this necklace to a party. This pendant may seem casually assembled, but looking more closely there is a beautiful balance. Lisa Walker tests your perception of jewellery, inviting you to look closely and think about materials, composition, making and cultural connections.

“The point about Walker’s work is that she will never conform, so we should never expect piety from this energetic and daring jeweller. I admire that.”
