Spent the first three days of this week at the Association for Contemporary Jewellery‘s conference ‘Crossings’. It was very stimulating, but whilst I digest that I just wanted to post about a great new jeweller Hollie Paxton who’s work was exhibited at the conference.I saw Hollie’s beautiful jewellery at New Designers a couple of weeks ago, and it was a real pleasure to come across it again. Hollie replicates fragments of discarded packaging in precious metals. It’s so skilfully done that her chewing gum wrappers, coffee stirrers, and bottle tops really look like the real thing. Actually they’re carefully crafted in precious metals and enamels. Quite stunning, wonderfully quirky: definitely another one to watch.
