James Newman - Inspiring work

At my previous visit to the Nec Spring Fair 2011, I couldn't help admire this gentleman's lovely work! His clean lines and simple designs, with subtle hints of diamonds, are a treasure to look at. Based in Birmingham Jewellery Quarter, James Newman has such a contemporary approach to designs, yet there is a classic feel to his pieces, and i just love the use of texture.

Innovative Herb Chopper

This stainless steel two blade herb chopper, was designed and made in my first year of HND at the School of Jewellery. The blades are laser cut and slotted together, and fixed in the press formed handle. Inspired by the motion of a mortar and pestle.
This is one of my first pieces of metal work and one i feel i can improve and develop into a commercial product in the upcoming year.
