Come explore my Art Jewellery

Purchase Rickson Jewellery @ www.RicksonJewellery.Etsy.com. I am an independant jewellery designer in love with creating new and exciting wearable art.  

I have my Masters in Jewellery Silversmithing and Related Products from the Birmingham School of Jewellery in the UK. I am now back in Toronto, Ontario Canada working as a full time jewellery artist and loving every minute!

Artist Statement:

I am interested in the feminine ideal in relation to the female body. I enjoy creating work that expresses my wish to both conform and rebel against ideas of femininity. Through various materials and processes I take from my own body both physically and metaphorically. Hair can be used to comment on feminine allure and power, while clear resin is used to symbolize an abundance of tears.

Furthermore, I am interested in the way humans attempt to separate themselves from the primal world of animals with supposedly civilizing rules and regulations. I understand gender as part of the ‘cultured body’ and connect the tension between female and feminine with the struggle to exist as both an animal and a human.

I also create narrative photographs of my jewellery on my own body. The jewellery itself references my ideas of body and femininity as I am wearing it, and enhances the idea that femininity is a performance rather than an innate quality. Overall I enjoy deconstructing and reconstructing the feminine ideal to create wearable works of art alongside narrative photography.

Enjoy!

Thank you so much for your comments! I actually saw one of your pieces in the Schmuck cataloge and I really enjoyed it. And then I too saw your spine piece, wonderful! Also, your Everlong necklace is fantastic! I really enjoy how a whole set of jewelry is on one chain. I actually love Lauren Kalman's work. My first metalsmithing class at New Paltz had a photo of the Hard Ware piece, the gilded tongue, in the room and I fell in love.

Thank you for such a meaningful and supportive comment! It sincerely touched my heart. I love your wax ring series.

Hello,
Thanks for friending me! I look forward to getting to know you! I wondered if that pic of me was always up- or just when I was on crafthaus! James is such a cutie- I just love him and so do my students! He is such a good friend and mentor to me. The doll head is a mannequin that I stumbled upon in Paris last summer. It just screamed Alison! Several people - including my hubby- thought it was me at first glance.

Thanks so much--a former student of mine, Cody, shot the videos for me. They turned out much better than we planned. Did you see the bloopers at the end? Alison is actually a good friend of mine but we did the doll avatars by complete coincidence. My girlfriend, Sandie, surprised me with the modified Ken doll--she did a great job with the likeness, and even fabricated the glasses!
At 1:51pm on July 20, 2010, James Thurman said…
Oddly enough, I'm not the only one with a doll avatar. Thanks for looking me up!

Thanks for the comment! It has taken a while to get them to look right. The challenge now is to see if i can draw with just the materials in front of me. Hopefully I'll have some new pieces to post in a couple of weeks.
At 4:08pm on May 25, 2010, Natalie Smith said…
Thank you for your comment. I just work with sugar. I have developed my own techniques to create my pieces. I am currently doing the MA at the School of Jewellery in Birmingham, so I should have some new images on here soon.
The private view for the show is Saturday 11th September, if you are able to come.
