TITLE OF WORK:

The “CONNECT” Brooch

DESCRIPTION OF WORK:

2020 is chaotic. However, conflict and chaos can also be forms of communication, and “Out of chaos, comes order”. The “CONNECT” brooch is inspired by the philosophy of order & chaos, and human interaction.

AWARD BRIEF DESCRIPTION:

Creativity, craftsmanship and community are at the heart of the Goldsmiths’ Centre. They invited the jewellers to submit work on the theme of “Community”.

JUDGES COMMENTS:

The ‘CONNECT’ brooch was strong and well-communicated. Coco translated this concept into a thoughtful piece of jewellery resulting in a design which demonstrates an equal awareness of function and the trend for customisation.
