Anne Baynham
The troubles of leaving the nest / flying the coop.

"This has been a tough year for jewellery and I. Our partnership has been rigorously tested since leaving the comfortable and sheltered confines of University. Like a young bird leaving the nest for the first time, I have struggled to find my ' wings' and learn to work independently. This series of work is a narrative of this struggle and follows on from my graduate work."
Anne Baynhan 2009

Find. Trace. Regenerate.

"Find, trace, regenerate describes my performative process of making. All events of the making are archived in the resulting jewellery piece.
Tracing found objects and images onto a metal plane to reconstruct and fabricate into jewellery structures, new narrative constructs are physically created."
