Presence and Absence

Presence and Absence is a collection of jewellery created by Ruby Sylvester-Jeyes that reflects upon the effects of the Coronavirus Pandemic, exploring both the artist’s personal experience and the experience of people within her community. The series was developed over a year, changing with the uncertainty of the circumstances, with moments of joy and areas of fear that are evident in the designs and outcomes.
