New in the drawers: Katy Hackney

There is a playfulness about Katy Hackney’s jewelery; her unorthodox materials challenge our preconceived notions of what is precious. Katy’s use of alternative materials such as cellulose acetate, Formica, plywood and enamel paint are dictated by what she happens upon in antique and thrift stores. The discovery of an old, discarded piece of cellulose acetate or Formica no longer produced – therefore extinct, is viewed as others would a costly jewel, squirreled away until she devises jewellery… Continue

getting there

I've been on holiday for a few days, so no posts. Back to the grindstone today, playing about with these Japanese alloys. Just before I went on holiday, I was having problems with an ochre-coloured deposit on the metals and copper plating: I guessed that this was caused by iron in some way - a hazard in my workshops, where old bits of iron are as likely to be on the bench as precious metals. 

Cleaning everything up made a huge difference to the samples and I even achieved some very…
