It's time for my final module at the School of Jewellery!
Continuing on from the 'Full Bloom' ring that I made for a previous module (Full Bloom Ring) I have decided to explore the potential of laser sintering more in depth and create a statement neck piece which will have interchangeable flowers so the neck piece can be a new design every time it's worn.
Taking inspiration from flowers such as peonies for their full bloom shape I want to incorporate them into various flowers which will build up and become a collection of their own to go onto the neck piece.
I've chosen to make the neck piece base out of hexagons as this reflects honeycomb and the bees which pollinate the flowers and to create awareness for the dying British bee.
With laser sintering I have the freedom to print this neck piece in one using a chain mail method. With consideration to the build plate size the neck piece can be built flat in sections and then joined back together with silver cast links.
I am a third year student at the School Of Jewellery in Birmingham. Posts will be based upon my progress through my final year on this DFI course.
