I am a second year student at South Nottingham College in Nottingham
England. I am interested in using found objects in jewellery. My
theme will be based on my genealogical family’s photos, signatures
and newspaper articles reduced to the appropriate scale.
My materials will be silver, and non-precious metals family fabrics
used to make textures or in a rolling mill, fabric with printed
images and the objects such as a WWI dog tag.
I am looking forward to learning more about the best ways of making
and printing copies as well as other’s experiences in the area of
found objects and genealogy.
Could someone help me with names of jewellers who specialize in
found objects? I know of famous ones Susan Lenhart Kazmer, and there
is also a very famous man whose name escapes me just now.
Thanks for consideration of my query,
