Designer Jewellers Group Member An Alleweireldt is already gearing up for new shows with a lot coming up! (as most of the group do at this time of year). Goldsmith’s Fair is around the corner, and she is also making new pieces for Pop Art Design an exhibition starting at The Barbican Art Gallery in October. This runs from October the 22nd to Feb 2014. An has made some special pieces, made from silver (with dots referring to the dots often seen in Pop Art), and vinyl records.
Each piece with vinyl is unique, as the label will define it’s look.
Most people seldom play their vinyl anymore but find it difficult to part with. These pieces take invisible memories, which records carry, out of dusty record boxes and back into daily life again!
An has worked with vinyl before, making unique or commissioned pieces, combining with 18ct gold and diamonds, as well as production pieces. Her collection includes rings, pendants, earrings, cufflinks and bangles.
