New Designers 2014

So this was it, this was the event that ended my 3 years at Staffs university... but as they say, time flies when your having fun! 
I turned up on the 23rd of june at the business design centre, islington to set up my final body of work "The Yersin collection"

At my degree show i was lucky enough to have my work on a light box, which work beautifully with my brooches, but at new designers we decided to have my work pinned up on the wall. Which i was so pleased with as i thought it really made my pieces

This was a wonderful experience for me, it gave me the opportunity to see what the public thought about my work, which was all positive thankfully! but it also gave me the chance to speak to other makers who were in the same position as me. 
My work got all different types of attention from collaborative groups to placement opportunities, one of which was from Staffordshire's own Jennifer Collier, who spoke to me about her 'cultivated' program for new makers. 
But i think my highlight of New Designers was that i got to speak the to Norman Cherry! former Head of the Birmingham university.
