BA (Hons) Three Dimensional Design

Stephanie Dews

In my work I bring two of my interests together: history and jewellery. I combine the two to produce work which is historically based, yet with a modern twist. In this way I can go some way to bringing historical ideals into modern wearables.

My current collection is focused on the Victorian Era. I am intrigued with the mourning jewellery from this time and have taken colours from this e.g. gold, red and black to produce pieces with immediate visual reference to the Victorian past. Having looked at chatelaines from this time my work has developed to be primarily about fans and pins, which were often appendages from this, and I have combined the two by adding sewing and embroidery inspired by the heavily patterned wearables of Queen Victoria’s lifetime.
