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.

Find...Make...Wear and my exciting news

Have I mentioned this brilliant project? There's a group on flickr devoted to photos from the 'Find... Make... Wear' project by the Victoria & Albert Museum, London and artist in residence Dame Dorothy Hogg (one of her stunning pieces is pictured left). Anyone can take part in this project but the jewellery must be made from recycled materials. It's well worth exploring as there's such a diversity of styles and materials to see. http://www.flickr.com/groups/findmakewear/ Anyway, I have just spent a couple of months making recycled fabric pieces for my college project. So, I posted a couple of pictures in the group. To my absolute amazement and delight the picture below has been selected (one among many)to be on the permanent V & A web page of the project. Please visit the site and wave. I'm 4 rows down and 5 along and very happy to be there! http://www.vam.ac.uk/collections/fashion/designer_residence/findmakewear_scase/index.htmlx.html

  2. hi su--so nice to find your blog and to see this fantastic project! congrats on being selected for the web page --you must be very excited. the pieces are sensational and i'm sure will prove extremely valuable additions to your current mode of working! nothing like a departure from the tried and true to breath new drama and excitemnet into things!


  3. Congratulations Su! But you totally deserve it - your work is fabulous!

  4. You have a great shop. I just went to Bath for the first time this past Nov. It was amazing I am dying to go back and spend some more time there.

  5. Well done Quercus, you must be chuffed to bits, that's a wonderful piece of recycled art, they almost look like tiny shells, I love the photo to. I showed my son, he was most impressed that you'd made that out of paper.
