Bring Back the Dead: The Big Swap!

A little while ago I took part in "Bring back the Dead", an exhibition organised by Joanne Garner at Anomaly. There were 34 participants from 7 different countries.

"The jewellery will be given away to another jeweller and given a new life, brought back from the depths of your studios and workshops and brought back from the dead!"

I was really pleased to be given the brooch by Heather Woof. It is very beautiful and it reminds me of stacked books, although I know a lot of her work is inspired by Scottish weather!

As part of the exhibition we were asked to submit an image of us wearing the piece we gave a new home to. So here is a pic of me wearing it and an image of the work up close, lucky me!
