An Association for Contemporary Jewellery juried exhibition - 2012
'Thirty two participating designers embraced the theme of the Jubilee celebration with style, irreverence, humour and panache. Crushed gemstones, sweets and jellies, ribbon, graphite powder, flocked and sublimated materials, rub shoulders with diamonds, silver and 18ct gold, in a glorious celebration of Queen Elizabeth II's sixty years reign.The pieces were selected by a distinguished judging panel chaired by Professor Jack Cunningham, which included Corinne Julius, Jacqueline Gestetner, Joanna Hardy, Kath Libbert and Karen Dell'Armi.'

I chose to work with commemorative objects associated with the Inauguration of the Queen at her Coronation in 1953. These have been repurposed to create a brooch, celebrating the Diamond Jubilee. Although a new object, like the Queens reign, my piece is by origin, 60 years old.
