Re-worked: A collaboration between Nicola Reed and textile designer Sara Nevay exploring how destructive processes can highlight the idea of preciousness in vintage materials
Re-worked is a collaborative project by jewellery designer Nicola Louise Reed and textile designer Sara Nevay, both graduates of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, University of Dundee, Scotland with 1st Class Honours.
