We are delighted that Level Five Artist Designer: Maker Student Rhian Alley was awarded 3rd place in Jewellery and Fashion at Pewter Live’s Student Award 2018. Her ‘One Ocean’ brooch series was designed to raise awareness of the significant decline in global shark populations.
She says ‘I’m passionate about using craft and design to delight and inform. 50% of sales profits will be donated to The Shark Trust, whose mission is to safeguard the future of sharks through positive change. Not only did I enjoy the process of working with pewter but to see the finished result and hard work on display with other talented student makers made the experience more than worthwhile. There were plenty of other makers and craftspeople at the prize giving ceremony to network with and the standard of work on display was high and varied”.
