american designer lauren vanessa tickle explores and reevaluates the intrinsic value of currency through the discipline of jewelry.
‘increased value’ is a series of objects representing synthesized reflections on the idea of money through adornment where tickle engages in a
meticulous and deliberate interrogation of the material. slicing, cutting and reassembling one dollar bills, tickle creates a collection of elaborate
wearable objects that encompass processes and values connected to the identity and role of money in contemporary society.
 

tickle says of her work:

 

my work is an experiment in the concepts of value and adornment. I force wearers and observers to reflect on the concept of adornment in our society.
one of the most conscious actions humans undertake is the decision of what to wear or not. my work takes underlying materialism and makes it explicit,
imploring evaluation from all sides in each social context.’
