Re-worked Collaborative Project

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.

 

This project aims to examine the notion of preciousness in vintage and modern materials by using destructive processes. By mixing disciplines, Re-worked aims to broaden each designers knowledge of the others specialism after slightly touching upon these disciplines in their respective final year projects. 

 

 

"Made possible with the financial assistance of the Craft Makers Award: Dundee Scheme"

 

"Re-worked will highlight the notion of preciousness in modern materials by examining the process of re-adapting vintage materials in making marks (permanent and impermanent) with precious and non-precious metals and destructive processes."

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!
