A capsule jewellery collection aimed at reclaiming female power. Including a series of cast metal and glass dagger clips inspired by the hidden daggers in sixteenth century corsets; the juxtaposition of pleasure and pain, power and oppression. By subverting the visual language of stereotypical femininity the collection exposes the double-edged sword of patriarchal culture.
