Revisited; Degree Show Work

Now I have a nice number of followers I thought I would revisit some posts I made in a time before I blogged ‘properly’! You may or may not know I recently graduated from a BA(hons) in 3D Design; Crafts and specialised in Contemporary Jewellery and Accessories. Since finishing the course I’ve not been taking my craft seriously though, mainly due to lack of motivation and space. I do have an Etsy Shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/GoodMorningMagpie) and a Facebook fan page (https://www.facebook.com/goodmorningmagpie) and it would be wonderful if you could like that for me! But I do often find myself really neglecting any creative things lately! So here are a few images from my final degree show! I hope you like them! And I am selling some of these items too. I will list prices below the images and if you’re interested please don’t hesitate to get in touch! Each item is 100% handmade. From sheets of metal all saw pierced, filed, etched, enamelled and soldered to death! 
Floral Pin Brooch £10

Floral Pin Brooch £10
Floral Pin Brooch £10
Floral Pin Neckpiece £20
The idea of the floral pieces is to show some deterioration in the metal to communicate the life cycle of the flower (or something like that, or so my design blurb harped on) Anyway the burnt metal/edges was done on purpose!
Honeycomb Brooch £20
Honeycomb Brooch £20
These are all saw pierced copper which has been enamelled then set in orange resin to resemble nectar, then set in a completely handmade brass bezel with a painstakingly made brooch back!

The final collar necklace didn’t get finished until the day of the show so I didn’t have time to take a final picture of it!!
I’m quite proud of achieving these final outcomes when I think about it. I mean it’s quite amazing that I have developed the skills to literally make something out of nothing….!?
And this was my final display.
The dress is from Retro Rehab in Manchester FYI
