The Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham, England
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.

MA (Commendation) Jewellery, Silversmithing, and Related Products from Birmingham City University, United Kingdom (2010)

I am interested in the dialogue created when recognisable forms from the history of European fashion and the decorative arts are combined, changed, and reinterpreted in a modern material.
For this project I chose to focus on material research and development, exploring plaster as a primary material in jewellery. Plaster has long been used in architectural decoration, but the plaster I use has been chemically changed with modern products to create an altered material that is waterproof and suited for use in jewellery production. I explored surface enhancement and advanced construction techniques to further develop the jewellery. I developed my construction methods based on historical plasterwork, adapting these techniques to fit my personal design agenda.
The images and forms I use come directly from my photos and drawings, based on objects seen on my visits to museums and stately homes. My interest in the forms, patterns, and images from the rich history of European design inspires this collection of contemporary jewellery.

Hi Miriam - How should I submit for the show?  I don't want to jam up your inbox with the movie.  I'd love to be in your show, just let me know how you'd like me to proceed.  Thanks for your interest!

Thanks for the link to the National Trust commission. I've downloaded the PDF to see what they are after!

Miriam, I have already spotted your call for entries and am now trying to decide whether or not to create something wholly new or whether to pull together existing photographs!

I'd love to do something new but a commission came my way about which I am not allowed to speak and that will be taking my time for the foreseeable future.

Whatever happens, I'll send you an entry.

Thanks for telling me. I am currently working very hard on entries from outside of the US, it's good to know it is working. I AM getting good entries from the UK specifically :-))

Haha! The holidays differ wildly. When I was young, I used to hate it because the anglo-centric television programmers would start showing Tarzan series when the English schools were on holiday and then I never saw the end because we went back to school first!
