Creative Scotland Artists Bursary Funding

I was awarded a Creative Scotland Artist Bursary in February of this year. I have been keeping a specific blog for the development of the work created throughout this period.

Using the funding I spent a week at West Dean college on a 'Tress and Wood' week where I learnt from renowned jeweller, Beth Legg, how to use jewellery creatively in jewellery. This is explained in the blog and has also been published on the Benchpeg website and through the Designer Jewellers Group, see the links below.
