Momoko Tamura’s jewellery explores the boundaries between reality and fantasy through the depiction of fairy-tale inspired images.
Influenced by European antique jewellery of the 16th-19th century and post-war Japanese sub culture, her references are combined to create figurative macabre objects.
They are more like 3D illustration or wearable miniature sculptures rather than fashionable jewellery.
The pieces are finely handcrafted assemblages of child-like imagination, suggesting ambiguous, twisted humour.
