Copper Octahedron

The prototype for one of my final pieces is final finished. Now I just need to make the embroidery!

Today I continued my tuition with Aileen Hamilton (www.aileenhamilton.co.uk) and the piece is beginning to come together. We encountered a few problems when soldering the hinge but we will continue to experiment until we have it looking perfect. I also started to bend the shape together which is very exciting and I can’t wait to see the finished product.

Jewellery Design

Welcome to my new blog. This blog is going to document my experimentation with embroidery and jewellery, combining the two in interesting ways. Today I embarked on my first jewellery session with Aileen Hamilton http://www.aileenhamilton.co.uk/ she is helping me to create original jewellery pieces that incorporate stitch. I am very excited to continue with my lessons and see what interesting ideas we can come up with. Here are some images from my first jewellery workshop and the beginnings of my piece.
