I am playing with the concept of the wearer being able to contribute to the development of a piece and personalize it to some extent. If the wearer interacts in this way I think it will allow my jewellery to go beyond simple adornment to a personal level with the wearer.

These elements can also be attached to a removable ring shank allowing the wearer to create a combination of their own.
I am hoping this will be quite a marketable concept that will encourage people to buy new elements to add on, much like adding charms to a charm bracelet.
