Artist Biography, Michele Daykin

I am a designer maker based in Fife, Scotland I studied at Edinburgh Telford College (Diploma in Stitched Textiles) and then at Dunfermline Carnegie College (Jewellery Design and Manufacturing). I combine these two disciplines in my jewellery designs; silver and batik fabric.

Inspirations for my designs come from surfaces; the repeat markings on Glasgow pavements, the chisel markings on Edinburgh walls along with aged and weathered brick and stonework.

I work predominantly in silver, I treat each piece individually; no two pieces will be exactly the same - even a pair of ear rings. I batik the fabric myself and mix the pigments to dye each panel separately.
