Kernowcraft competition winner Cara

We are so proud of Cara, one of Hannah’s students for winning January’s Kernowcraft competition challenge.  The jewellery piece had to include garnet as its Januarys birthstone.  Cara’s gothic silver and garnet cross was a Christmas gift for her beautiful daughter.  She looks stunning sporting her gorgeous handmade gift.  You can check out Cara’s work on Insta and Facebook at “Arty Jeweller”.  What a lavish, eye-catching design with so many components and techniques.   

"My daughter had been admiring the ornate gothic style crosses in jewellery shops on the island of Santorini. So, I decided to make her one, not having any experience of setting marquise garnet stones or barely any stone setting experience. It was a total headache as isn't perfect by a long shot, but she loves it and that's all that matters. I learned so much and really got to appreciate the beauty of the stones."
