marked is a series of works investigating the residue left behind by jewellery, that resonate on the skin long after a piece has been removed.  This project uses skin as a self-referential mechanism and demonstrates how skin surfaces can be gently manipulated to respond to ephemeral embellishments.  In this manner, the premise behind the marked series is the ability of skin to transmute into temporary articles of jewellery, topically and through introduced means, in addition to the more common role as a site for adornment.
