Members' News for March

I bet you've been wondering what the Etsy Metal team has on tap for March and I'm here to tell you-

Maria Whetman of Fluxplay has been selected to show in the prestigious Association of Contemporary Jewellers Diamond Jubilee Exhibition. Announcement and catalogue will shortly follow on Crafthaus. The exhibition tours the length of England and was curated by ACJ and Professor Jack Cunningham, so the tour starts in Birmingham at the School of Jewellery then visits the new Goldsmiths Centre in London established  then the tour ends in Scotland.

I have made a cluster of 3 "celebration hatpins for the Queens hat". One is a 'diamond' made from a Gordons Gin & Tonic can, set in a traditional stone setting with a subset faux diamond, the second is an icy clear resin, 'melting' ice cube containing a square faux diamond and all set in a traditional-inspired stone setting, the third pin is a repousse slice of lemon containing a pip-shaped (marquise) faux diamond. I have published a blogpost including a couple of photos of work in progress early on, click here to see them-

March 12-17 Birmingham School of Jewellery.
June 11-17 (during London Jewellery week) Goldsmiths Centre, London.
July 2-28 SH Gallery, Morningside Rd, Edinburgh.
August 27-31 North Glasgow College,Glasgow.

Congrats to Maria on this fabulous accomplishment!
