Roanne Sanchez-Watts is a jewellery artist and a 2020 graduate from Central Saint Martins, London. Acknowledging that jewellery feels like something, Roanne sees her adornment as embodiments of the physical and emotional connections we share. Having grown up, trained and worked in different countries, Roanne is compelled by narrative, responding to the meaning she finds therein.
The hands are the place we connect with each other and the world, they affiliate us to life and aid our participation with it. Of Your Hands symbolises union through the act of giving. Her rings, simplified and universal, are about the self and the other, and invite the ones too big or small to be given away. The completeness of rings is both visual and ethereal— rings take you somewhere. Take me to you.
