work: Mesh and Helix - ten gold jewellery pieces

The research project including Mesh and Helix jewellery series was first disseminated within 100% Proof, an international touring exhibition, curated by Dorothy Hogg MBE, representing Scottish Silversmithing & Jewellery. The works exhibited included ten gold jewellery pieces. The series were designed with the use of CAD and the manufacturing processes of Rapid prototyping, Casting and other traditional jewellery making techniques.

Slideshow: David Goodwin - 100% Proof

Both the Mesh and Helix series seek to push the boundaries of new technologies through the development of complex and precise open structures appropriate for jewellery manufacture and the field of craft. The use of new manufacturing techniques within the creation of the jewellery objects seeks to research the possibilities that emerging technologies offer to create work that may not be able to be manufactured through existing techniques.

Other practitioners in this exhibition included Susan Cross, Anna Gordon, Katy Hackney, Dorothy Hogg, Andrew Lamb, Beth Legg, Lynne Kirstin Murray, Adam Paxon, Adrian Hope, Marion Kane, Roger Millar, and Linda Robertson.
