Sara: This post is long overdue! A few images from my initial compositional experiments after receiving the first parcel. These should be ready soon - simple in their foundations for where I hope to move next. …See More

jewelry, metals, mixed media, My work explores the rigmarole of the daily cosmetic routines women create for themselves as well as taking inspiration from the two opposing ideas people tend to have of vanity: clinical cosmetics and the notion of a 50's boudoir filled with perfume atomizers and suspenders. By combining the clinical with intrinsically feminine touches, a unique, contemporary collection is created.
"The only cure for vanity is laughter, and the only fault that is laughable is vanity." Henri Bergson
Inspired by the above quote, I was interested in using a mark-making element in my pieces to recreate the humorous aspects of make up, such as loose powder spilling inside its wearer's handbag. By combining vanity-inspired quotes, cosmetics and cosmetic applicators as well as vintage textiles with silver and laser cutting techniques, I have created a unique collection of wearable messages.

Hi Nicola, thanks for adding me! You've got some really lovely pieces here, and I'm looking forward to seeing more. Congrats on the boutique in Edinburgh- next time I'm up there I'll have to find out which one so I can go have a look :)

Hope you enjoy Crafthaus, lots of great artists to connect with...good discussions.
Over the next few weeks we are after some idea of videos that you would like us to film. Perhaps it is a particular tool that you want Andrew to demonstrate. Have you asked Santa for an item of equipment that you would like…"
