Simeoni’s work is a homage to the senses - a wearable passport to a whimsical ‘other’ reality, finding the beautiful and seductive in what is otherwise thought of as mundane. The rich colours and textures of these found objects are important triggers of inspiration, and a limited pallet provides more possibilities. Her work toys with mass-production processes and she frequently reconfigures mass produced objects to create interactive conceptual jewellery.
