Formica supplies

My workEmily Kidson

Up until now I have been using laminate samples to make my jewellery, however, as I work, develop and make more pieces the time has come for me to buy some sheet. Formica comes in sheets over 3 metres by 1 metre (3050x1300x0.7mm) and in over 120 colours - so I really had to think hard about my colour choices as I knew it was going to last me a long time! I have stuck to my signature colours which are bright orange and yellow and added pale grey, dark grey, black, white, teal and red. I usually cut my Formica with a jewellers piercing saw but this time I got some help from my neighbours at the Oak Joinery: Formica1








Massive thanks to George and everyone at the Oak Joinery who helped me cut this down! I can't wait to start using it.
