We love jewellery, and we are super duper excited about our new friend Sally from 'Hand over your fairy cakes'. An original, quirky and fun artist working in acrylic jewellery:
...I like to use bright colours and multiple layers of acrylic to make bright, unique jewellery. I begin designing my jewellery by scribbling my ideas onto paper then turning my favourite ones into vectors using Inkscape. I then send these designs to be lasercut from bright 3mm acrylic sheets.
...When my newly cut shapes arrive I then glue the pieces together to form the final piece. Sometimes they don't quite work the first (or second, or even third!) time and I have to alter the vector drawing and have it re-cut. It's a great feeling when it all comes together though!'
Sally joins us for the 1st time at reetsweet on Dec 1st at Leeds Corn Exchange...free entry as always!
