Abbie graduated in 2016 with a BA (Hons) in Jewellery Design & Related Products from Birmingham School of Jewellery, with her graduate collection being awarded runner-up of the RBSA Gallery Prize for Innovation & Creativity. Following a further year at the school as an Artist in Residence Abbie continues to be based in Birmingham where she develops her unique work.
What is truly striking about Abbie's designs is the interest with maths and geometry. Of her creations Abbie says, "my work draws on themes of geometry, symmetry and patterns found within mathematics, bringing together bold lines and graphic forms. I create fashion jewellery that combines hi-tech digital processes such as laser cutting with traditional metal skills like scoring and piercing, and I enjoy contrasting metal with unexpected new materials. Ultimately, my work aims to be statement-making and unconventional, while remaining wearable, playful and colourful."
And how special would it be to own something as intricate as that? Well, Abbie has very kindly given one of you the chance to win a pair of her prettiest Pink Ombre Dangly Earrings. And I have paired this with a soft baby pink Velvet Bow Headband.
