Sha-green (brooch); 2019; denatured citrus fruit peel, sintered aluminium, stainless steel; 54x25x67mm.

Sha-green series presents food waste, in the form of discarded citrus fruit peel, as a sustainable, biodegradable, vegan alternative to the traditionally animal-based luxury decorative surface shagreen (ray or shark skin). This scented material comes alive when worn; as it is warmed by the body it emits a subtle fruity fragrance.
