Textile & Metal Jewellery; a collaboration with Alys Power

My collaboration collection with Alys Power is complete! I’ve enjoyed this partnership so much that I didn’t want to stop – we could have kept making things forever. 

We were keen that the collection was not entirely wearable but still had some elements of jewellery about it. Some of the pieces are wearable (necklaces, pendants, brooches) and there are several that are pincushions or simply decorative objects. We liked that they were enigmatic and open to your own interpretation. I see them as pieces for a cabinet of curiosities….. or in a modern home, decorative conversation pieces for display. The collection is inspired by Calke Abbey and I hope we’ll be able to display the work there, one day. 

We are running a joint workshop showing both metalworking and textile techniques on Sunday 7th July at my studio. 

Explore exciting techniques with two tutors for the price of one! Ruth Singer and Alys Power have been collaborating on a new collection of metal and textile jewellery. This workshop gives you the opportunity to try out simple metalworking including cutting, shaping, drilling and enamelling onto metal. In the afternoon you will work into your metal pieces with stitching, needlelace and braiding techniques to create an amazing bespoke pendant or brooch.
£60 including materials, but please bring along your treasures that you may want to add to your work such as fabric scraps, broken jewellery, ribbons or buttons.

These pieces will be shown in Synchronise which opens on Friday evening at National Centre for Craft & Design until June 2013.
