Next month I will be running some jewellery making workshops in Neath, Port Talbot. The first is this Paper and Silver Jewellery Workshop. Below are some examples of what you can make.
I’ve been meaning to post these for ages!!
I’d have liked to have taken better photos but I’d never put up photos if I stuck to that.
These are stackable rings I made for my last project on my Silversmithing course.
I did them as part of my final Foundation Art project – Industrial and Urban Landscapes.
They are based on the shapes of the industrial buildings and machinery at Port Talbot Steel Works.
Last week I created a few digital images combining my photos of the rusty metal with my photos of Port Talbot steel works.
To see more of my digital images go to:
I wanted then to develop these ideas and hopefully apply an image to the metal so I made a stencil to print with.
I then started by printing my stencil onto my photos of rust.
And finally I had a go at painting the stencil onto some of the rust itself.
Today I have been playing with paper. I’ve been making little paper sculptures based on the shapes within the electricity pylons and the structures I saw at Port Talbot steel works. I have also been influenced by my mother’s ceramics – Julie Brunskill.
