2011 New Designers, London

I attended the annual graduate exhibition in surface and jewellery design at New Designers. New Designers is always a meaty task as there is so much to see under one roof and lots of talent.
However there are some gems worth discovering :) Here's some things that caught my attention........

Catherine Carr knits beautiful crochet plates using glass! Each piece is completely unique and hand knitted and stunning. Visit Catherine's website at: www.catherinecarrglass.com

 Laura Cet's jewellery didn't immediately capture me, not until Laura said I could touch it. What I thought was solid gold or plated gold was actually squidgy silicone - mimicing gold. I loved Laura's concept - challenging the monetary value of product - if cheap silicone can look like expensive gold, then wear it like it is :) Visit Laura's site at www.lauracet.co.uk

Linsey Orr's surface pattern designs are strong in style and considered in colour. To me it says Marimekko meets kimono - simple clean geos overlapping and mixed with lovely texture. Really lovely work. You can visit Linsey's site at www.linseyorr.com
