"Jewellery is the most personalised of art forms; aesthetic objects that are on you, with you, about you. As such, jewellery objects are also most powerful sites for symbolic exchange, narrative and mnemonic intention. Historically, and in many cultures, the makers of objects with expressive, emotional and symbolic power incorporated rare or precious materials to embellish the significance and aesthetics of the objects they made." Professor Ross Woodrow (March 2018)

"Elizabeth Shaw’s contemporary jewellery and objects turn to the philosophy of reuse and upcycling. Made from 100% recycled silver and remounted stones, and broken fragments of consumer jewellery, her work is all about sustainable and ethical jewellery practice in an attempt to break the luxury paradigm – what could be considered the antithesis of NGA’s Cartier exhibition."
