Central Saint Martins: MA Design Jewellery Graduate Show 2011 Review

I absolutely adored the work of Gwyneth Harris and Gabrielle Rosanna Harris (no relation to each other) from the Jewellery discipline of the MA Design course at CSM.

Tourmaline Boa pendant by Gwyneth Harris.

There were two jewellers that caught my eye from the MA Design course that covers Ceramics, information pills Furniture and Jewellery at Central Saint Martins. Gwyneth Harris's Boa Collection was absolutely exquisite: an exploration of surface qualities through shape, generic colour, tone and pattern, inspired by the sinuous lines of snakes. She used German lapidary experts to create her beautiful winding tourmaline pendant, which was first carved in wax. Everything was created in shifting shades of red, her favourite colour. Gorgeous, I wanted to wear every piece.
