Below left: the love letters between her grandparents have been put to an unusual purpose by jeweller Rebecca Smith, a graduate of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee.
She is one of nine new graduates who have a selling show, Youth Movement: Nine New Graduates, at Kath Libbert's Jewellery Gallery at Salts Mill, a former textile mill, near Bradford, which runs from November 13 to January 25, 2015.
Rebecca has used the famiiy letters to create one-off brooches, earrings and necklaces, using the original handwriting to repeat the emotions contained in the lines, plus old photographs.
Shown here and priced at £160 are the Darling Margaret silver pressed oval earrings with yellow tassels, although these can come in a myriad of hues. The laser writing is etched onto white enamel.
Visitors to the show can have their own jewellery created by Rebecca from personal pieces.
Kath has owned this contemporary jewellery gallery since 1996. She started from a table top at the Corn Exchange, while working as an NHS psychologist, The Times lifestyle magazine, Luxx, recently described the gallery thus: "For clients who want jewels that push boundaries. . . the antidote to the high street". Which has certainly brought more customers up the motorways.
