Black Metal

A few weeks back I visited to the V&A to look at their display of wrought iron structures for inspiration. I was most drawn to the strong geometric shapes of triangles within circles repeated in multiple forms, and from this I created a fairisle knitting pattern. Around the same time went to Harrogate for a wedding which had a strong gothic influence, and went to a Metal gig, the first band Soror Dolorosa sounded stunning and their artwork styled on klimt caught my attention. All of this influenced my final pieces, to be worn as jewellery, playing with scale and shape, these large pendants with the stitches forming ornate patterns in miniature, evoke a sense of the ironworks and the gothic.
