Imprints,memories and connections from people and places

My final project began by having an interest in vintage objects that could be tucked away in a drawer, hidden from sight. It has taken me on a further journey researching what women value about their dressing table or their personal space, what it says about the personality and what treasured objects are hidden in the drawers and boxes.

The jewellery and keepsakes are like a diary, they tell a story about a place, a time and people.  They can give confidence when worn, bring back memories and hold certain connections. These are imprinted on our lives, some stories are faded and fragmented and some are clear and easily remembered. From all of this research I have been inspired by the women’s conversations, stories and treasured objects.

These collages are a few of my developments for my jewellery pieces.

I’m starting to work in combining metal and fabrics.

These are some more developments, a sample pieces.IMG_4406IMG_4434Brooch sample4
