In 2018 there was a celebration for the 150th anniversary of the birth of Rennie Mackintosh, Glasgow's most famous architect, designer artist, pioneer of modernism. He is at the centre of the only form of art nouveau to come out of Britain and that is termed as the Glasgow style.
We had a task in College to create a jewellery piece that would be exhibited in the famous Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow. During my research I saw images of his chairs. And an idea came to me all of a sudden – to create a jewellery stand similar to his chairs that is actually a transformable jewellery box with earrings inside and the back of the chair is a necklace. All from sterling silver and malachite.
The stand was shown at the exhibition and had great success. I participated in Craftex 2018 of The Trades House of Glasgow and won First place and the prestigious Deacon Convener's Design Prize.
