I’ve been developing some neck piece ideas using delicate fabrics, old photos, pearls, silver and perspex.
This work in progress features an old family photo of two children on a bike very cute. I plan to string the pearls with pink silk to co-ordinate with the pink pearls and create a contemporary design with a vintage aesthetic.
Using silk and chiffon is tricky as it is so delicate especially when combining it with metal and plastics. I’m certainly developing more patience working with these materials!
This is another neckpiece in development. I’ve pressed formed silver sheet to create the oval shape. I’ve also soldered on silver wire posts then attached half drilled pink cultured pearls. It’s finished now and it will be revealed at my Degree Show on the 16th May.
