Exhibitions and events
Furniture Design Fair, Milan – students were asked to design and make an object that would have a role in the journey from Falmouth to Milan by train. I created a brooch, necklace and ring, with a Rolling Ball game inside to help the wearer while away the hours on the long journey, each had a specialised acrylic display stand. I competed with Design students on six courses at Falmouth and was awarded one of eight places on a stand organised by the university.

Object + Idea + Inspiration = object, Truro. Students were asked to design and make an object inspired by a piece in the collection at the Royal Cornwall Museum that would appeal to people of all ages. I made a jewellery set, within each were moving balls, inspired by children’s games.

Looking Forward, Truro – dog themed jewellery, made during part time jewellery and silversmithing course at Truro College

City of Lights, Truro - students from the contemporary craft course worked in teams of ten to weave willow structures of giant Ice Age creatures and covered them in paper, the team I was in made a woolly mammoth, the creatures were then paraded at the City of Lights Festival in Truro.

Where am I? Trelissick National Trust garden, Truro - I designed and made a children’s trail. The theme was a story I created in which six owners were walking their five dogs along the river when the naughty dogs began chasing rabbits and became hidden in the garden. Five large plastic dogs were lasercut from acrylic and hidden around the garden for children to find, each had a sign showing their name and giving a short clue. A trail sheet could be purchased at the entrance, on this were images of the owners, who looked like their dogs, information that related to the clue by the dog and a space to write the dogs name. Advertising posters were put on billboards around the car park and entrance and the answers were posted in the shop at the exit to the garden. The trail was well received and continued for two months after the initial exhibition at the invitation of the national trust.

Pewter Live, London - as a finalist in the Pewter Live competition my dog themed jewellery was displayed at Pewterer’s Hall, London.

The Shape of Things To Come, Falmouth - I designed and made a range of jewellery around the theme of a city park, the pieces showed drawings of dogs, walkers and birds that were digitally printed on aluminium and fabric and lasercut from acrylic.

Organised and ran workshops at Age Concern day centre in Falmouth making brooches and cards.
