Sunday saw Part B’s ManJewellery event at Beer Deluxe in Melbourne. There will be an online exhibition of all of the works coming up soon, but I thought I’d share some images of the piece I created for ManJewellery, as worn by TurboModel on Sunday afternoon.
The piece features stacked coasters, sliced into slivers, which sandwich a piece of sandblasted steel between the layers for strength. I liked the aesthetic of the slivered coaster so much I made myself a brooch to match, out of enamelled steel.
In that case I redrew one of the slivers onto the enamel using graphite. I was pretty happy with the outcome, I have to say, even if the work looks a little unfinished at the edges. I’ll be posting about that over on the Heat Exchange blog soon.
