Looking for a way to express feelings of homesickness and a long-held desire to belong, Rachel Blair created a collection of jewelry focused on the idea of a ‘sense of place’.
Restricted Deep Yellow Brooch
Exploring the psychology of attachment to a place and its memories, the recent graduate of Glasgow School of Art used silver and gold frames to capture hand dyed, tension set wound papers and ink stained tape tightly wound around metal frames.

Work in progress
“The sensitivity of the fragile papers held in by pressure and tension; create an uneasiness and sadness, although aesthetically beautiful in muted tones of blue and green.”
Rachel Blair is one to watch. . .I look forward to her next collection.
