bangle

It was lovely to make this bangle today. It’s a design which has been on my mind for sometime and today I got to create it. A new type of setting for the postcard, prong setting instead of rivet. It could be tweaked but really happy with this 1st attempt. The colours all complement eachother also. What a beautiful postcard.

So… the start of my final year at University!! A long summer off I can’t wait to get back into my making but the thought of only 8 months left daunts me incredibly.
We started off with a quick weeks project using materials and process not used in our disciplines which for me, a meticulously organised person was quite hard work.
We have continued the experimental process into our first major project of year 3. Developing knowledge of processes and our interests into concepts we are pushing our boundaries of what we already know.
I am playing with box making, hinges and cold connections. Image transfer through etching and enamelling and continuing with my love and interest in vintage postcards, handwriting and neglected objects.
