Pass It Along Project
We are delighted to have taken part in the pass it along project again this year.
The pass it along project is a collaborative jewellery project. The idea is like the game of consequences, or Chinese whispers. Working within a small team of jewellers from across Europe and North America, I will work on a piece and then send it, or “pass it along” to the next person in my group who will then work on it before finally passing it along to a third person.
Below are two of the three pieces of work that we worked on for this project.
I received three pieces of silver with hand crocheted white threads, two of which were already connected (left picture). A bit foxed, I pinned them all on a board and waited for inspiration to strike. But it was only when I came across the three labradorite beads in my stash that I made the connection. I love the way that the earrings are mismatched but have a similar volume. I also love the contrasting colours. I added a piece of hematite to echo the silver balls, balance out the design and stop them looking too “matchy”. Despite not really taking to the silver and crochet pieces when I first received them, I have worn these earrings almost daily since completing them.
