“What Health Partners and UniSA have created with this program is the start of something great,” saidJono Hennessy Sceats of the competition, adding that design was essential for Australia.
“We can be a design-led nation so that innovations can be commercialised for sale all around the world.”
Jordan has described her work as inspired by Art Deco, modernism and minimalism.
“The major aspect of my work is art deco jewellery design with geometric shapes and gem embellishments in a symmetrical pattern,” her description of the design – titled Pendant – reads.
“The fold up design is to give a unique feel to the glasses and makes it more practical when wearing them as a pendant. They’re designed to look good around your neck as well as on your face.”
