Lina Peterson

Brooch, gold-plated silver, felt and thread.
I first saw the work of Lina Peterson at her graduation show at the Royal College of Art in 2006. 'The focus of my jewellery lies within the exploration of material qualities and combinations. Allowing room for playfulness to enter my work, I am interested in finding the balance between the controlled and the arbitrary. The use of textile techniques are combined with a range of other materials, such as dip-coated plastics and metals.'

Her latest works incorporating felt, stitch and wood are wonderful. If you don't make it to Origin this week, you can see them on her website.
