Lucy Pierpoint- rings 'Technological advancement has left, in its wake, discarded piles of perfectly functional yet apparently obsolete products. Recent council inorganic collections highlighted the lack of interest for old television screens. It is in my choice of redundant components, and the process of their transformation into jewellery that I defy their obsolescence. Democratic combinations with other precious materials restores, as well as exposes, their worth and beauty.'
