FURTHER INFORMATION:

Distinguished as an innovator of accessible design, Todd Oldham has evolved to include all areas of design, from interior design, film, and photography, to furniture, graphic art, and floral design. Originally a fashion designer, Oldham has since moved on into wearable art. His eclectic and designs fuse a traditional avant garde premise to an abiding love of crafts.

Oldham's irrepressibly mischievous design takes fashion less seriously than many established designers, bringing to dress a range of visual references. His creativity resonates with the open ended and experimental approach that pervaded the contemporary jewellery world in the 1980s.

His work is in line with elements of Post-modernist design such as the break-up of the barrier between fine art (in this case jewellery) and popular culture through the use of industrial materials. In this bracelet we see the exciting process of challenging the existing order of things, questioning values and blurring boundaries. This characterized the practice of much artisan jewellery in the late 1970s and early 1980s. At this time jewellery designers were questioning the adherence to conservative forms, the use of precious materials and a predominance of decoration over comment. There was space for something much more exciting and relevant which produced work that communicated a different set of values.
