Whilst researching laser cut jewellery I recently came across these incredible paper jewellery pieces from ‘Saloukee’ by Sarah Louise Kelly. Below are some images of her work.



2011-12 Studio Work

5 Nov

As promised here is an update regarding my studio work.

My degree show project is progressing quite well and at the moment I am reasonably happy. My concept and ideas are developing and I have even began thinking about colour schemes and the yarns which I am going to use to create my final collection. I don’t want to go in to too much detail about my project, but my work this year is inspired by  mechanical watch parts, time, nature and more recently the seasons which I think is going to greatly influence my final degree show. I intend to design and produce a range of knitted accessories, to do so I will use a variety of synthetic and natural yarns and the pieces will be created  using a range of traditional and contemporary techniques such as crochet and laser cutting.

I am particularly keen to combine metal components and laser cut leather pieces with my knitted samples. This is not only because metal and leather are materials which I am unfamiliar with and hence excited to experiment with, but also because the leather watch straps and metal parts have been a fantastic source of inspiration to date.

Below is a selection of images taken from my main sketchbook and two smaller sketchbooks I have been working on entitled ‘Inspired by Autumn’ and ‘Inspired by Spring’.

Alexa Meade

Today I discovered the incredible Alexa Meade. I think the idea behind Alexa Meade’s work is fantastic and the execution is equally brilliant. The  first two pieces shown below are of painted models in different settings. Following this the next images show 3-dimensional scenes complete with real life models and props painted and photographed to appear like a 2-dimensional painting.
