Brooches for LCW2017

London Craft Week starts next week and as part of this I have new work in an exhibition called Cabinet of Curiosities at jaggedart, Marylebone.

In this special collection of brooches I have been exploring Spring. Trees full of blossom in the surrounding streets have been a particular inspiration.

My social media accounts were a little quiet last week because I was doing a maker takeover of Contemporary British Craft over on Instagram. I thought I’d share my week here.
