The embroidery student turned jewellery creating statement pieces.
Irish jeweller Grace Hamilton studied embroidery at Manchester School of Art, leading to the development of striking neckpieces made using crotchet, knotting and embroidery techniques.
Each of her colourful design uses hundreds of metres of yarn and can take up to 40 hours to complete. Her collections include statement neckpieces featuring repeated knot patterns.
Grace’s work is inspired by her travels to East Africa, in particular Tanzania and Zanzibar, where she worked with a women’s co-operative, handcrafting various objects.
