Petra Bishai

Petra's jewellery is designed to stimulate attention, to attract the daring and allow the wearer to interact within their environment. She explores the concept of attraction and defence in respect of life in a large city: her jewellery is a response to questions of adaptation and interaction.

The spines of the creeping devil cactus form an array of starbursts; from each dagger-like central spine twenty smaller spines fan out in all directions. The pattern provides the maximum shield for the plant: the spines fend off predators and also shade the skin from the sun. An explosion of petals forming a radiating pattern is designed to capture attention: the key to the plant's survival is attraction and defence. Decoration becomes function: the plant adapts to its environment using pattern, scent and colour as lures, and at the same time creates a barrier through the use of sharp spines.
