Robyn’s jewellery is full of colour and uses different materials which really appeal to me and inspire my work too. Having explored Robyn’s website, and spoken via Skype, I decided to make a piece that combined an element of her work with mine. Robyn made a series of pieces using door knobs and that’s what I chose to incorporate into a brooch for her. The finished piece is made from yellow laminate, walnut, oxidised silver, steel and the wooden door knob fitted in really well. It was a lovely experience to make a piece just for a specific person.
