Deconstructing the first few mobile phones not only revealed the technology and materials used which give these objects their functionality but also revealed a hidden beauty. Viewing these individual component parts initially under a macro lens created a method for isolating and framing sections and seeing the decorative and structural qualities of the materials used.

This framing process inspired some of the early creative artwork where component parts are reworked and reused in jewellery that exploits their aesthetic characteristics; giving them a second life and new value. These images show detailed sections of circuit boards, shields, screens, connector pins and other parts that capture the beauty of the forms, patterns and colours.
