Su Trindle is a British designer and maker of sculptural modern silver and resin jewellery. My favourite place to be is my small workshop in my garden. I work alone, singing along to the radio striving to create beautiful well-designed, contemporary jewellery and make a living at it. This last is important, not just to my creativity and ego but to help feed by boys and the dog.

Recycled Textile Jewellery

I thought I'd share my latest project from the design and jewellery course I attend here in Bath
The aim was to produce a piece of modular, articulated jewellery using reclaimed and alternative materials.
Once I'd refined the construction, decided on shape, form, materials etc, I found couldn't stop.
So, I made the whole set, earrings, bracelet and necklace.
The little cones are made of batik fabric covered in a sticky backed plastic.
I glued them and then stitched each cone to the next until I had long articulated snakes.
The necklace and bracelet are also strung on wire, for strength, shape and to attach a clasp.
Finished Pieces
The result is very comfortable, tactile and certainly not like anything I have ever made before.
I had hoped this course would take me to new places as a jeweller.
I think it has.
