The End (of Year Show) is Nigh…

It’s the final countdown and the final brief – Jewellery Design: Manufacturing Techniques Advanced, to be precise. This is where I get to consolidate my learning and (fingers crossed) my Final Collection! 13 days til the End of Year Show… and counting!

We have been asked to produce a piece (or pieces) using two advanced techniques to compliment our previous designs – exploring 4 Design Options in total. I have to say, I have gone all around the houses on this one (visual pun intended!) as we have had so much else to complete but I think I may be making a little progress now… Again *crosses fingers*
