SHONA DOBIE

My body of work began with gathering research and inspiration from my surroundings, including everyday patterns and colour. Picking out ubiquitous circular shapes to create my Graduate collection. I have transferred my inspiration into my work by mainly looking at colour plus the patterns I was drawn to. I have explored different techniques to create pattern and repetition into my collection of jewellery.

I have been exploring the technique of enamelling; which has been a great way to add colour and texture to my collection. I have combined my enamelling work with a non-precious light metal, aluminium, which has allowed me to work in a larger scale. I have additionally used a variation of cold connections in my work which has allowed me to make my Graduate collection of jewellery playful and able to interact with the wearer.
