I used a sketch of a whale skull from the Natural History Museum and made it more abstract after being inspired by Manish Arora, I painted and filled in the inside shapes using block, clashing pigment colours contrasting nudes with neons. I really like the idea of 'treasure and trash' as I like to mix sequins and crystals with nails, nuts and washers. Again I painted the hardware using nail varnish and spray paints. I think the colours are a lot brighter than the other bone shape and the chain is a nice finishing touch to the design. I feel that this works really well with my mix match brief and used a symmetrical design so I could break the rules with unsymmetrical colours and embellishments.
