Update needed!!!

Whoops sorry, this post has been long been waiting to be published, and now I have finally got round to writing it!

Expandable bag, small version
Well the Coast brief has been submitted and gone, so first things first, images of the outcomes:

The expandable bag was initially a beach bag inspired and was centred around calico work in neutral colours.

The final bag, although on the same theme, was made with evening wear in mind. Using a mixture of velvet and silk as the main bag.

Expandable bag, detail pocket

The embellishment on the rocks was achieved using a mixture of French Knots and beads to get the texture of the rocks, the main rocks were made from a mixture of silver silk shot taffeta and silver satin, using both sides of the material, the different shades were present.

Candle Snuff detail

For the candle snuffer, I used limpets as the source of inspiration, by creating the 3D form for the limpet shell, in copper, then silver plating the piece, with a matt finish.

So now, I'm well into the new brief, this one is for Design Event in the North East England, which helps those just graduated or just starting in their business adventure to thrive.

This brief has taken inspiration from finding your Happy Place. I have focused on nature and gardens for this project, so we will see where this adventure will take me!
