For many people, the word jewellery conjures up images of gold, diamonds and mass-produced bling. This adorned baggage has led Fitness to explore alternative visual and contextual communication surrounding wearable objects that do not fit the traditional jewellery mould. Fitness creates silicone jewels that encourage play and interaction between the wearer and observer. They offer new possibilities for adorning and viewing jewellery, creating temporal art experiences for random audiences.

Sharon Fitness is also one of the cogs behind theĀ fabulousĀ Broach of the Month club in New Zealand.
