https://van-opstal.net/merinois/meritosew/3515 Taking physical disease as my subject matter, I have developed a series of body jewelry that packages what is generally a negative topic with individual physical aesthetics, utilising the linear structure of chemical elements as a foundation.

It is my hope that such a discussion of the interactive relationship between the works and the human body and the distinctive shapes created, will serve as critique of artificial chemical substances.
