Hiding inside the bottom of the birdcage necklace by Faye Wilson is a cabachon.

This Birmingham jewellery student has won praise from Charles Green.

Faye Wilson is the fourth winner of the annual Charles Green student design competition.

This birdcage-inspired pendant design won her first place back in December for her excellent use of CAD and a high degree of finishing.


She was also praised for perfectly answering the brief, which was to design a bespoke pendant featuring a coloured cabachon cut stone.

Wilson is a student at the Birmingham School of Jewellery.
