Neo-Luddites
The original Luddites took their hammers to the lace stocking manufacturing machines of the Industrial Revolution. Rebecca has updated the concept to one of our pet peeves- the beastly computer that has enslaved us all. The keyboards provided a natural and convient grist for the mill in a range of wearable jewellery that makes a statement- literally.
