Jack Inspired Fe
After researching Jack Cunningham's own inspirations I was thus inspired to create a piece personal to me, but using the same creative stimulus. Cunningham's piece 'crossing' is based upon a loved one of his that has passed over, he uses jewellery as a means of expressing himself, not just as a simple momento.
The brooch I created is a tribute to my dad's father, and my mother's mother. I thoroughly enjoyed making this piece as often within design, I feel constricted by ergonomics and practicality. Expressing yourself via jewellery was not something I had thought to do previously.
