While I was away in America I found out that I had been awarded the Young Creative of the Year award. The brief was Nottingham Welcomes the World so I submitted my Afro Caribbean inspired necklace. This necklace got me first place in the fashion category.
When I moved to Nottingham I instantly noticed a large Afro Caribbean community and so I took inspiration from this. I took my jewellery design which was developed in Nottingham and used it to celebrate and reflect colours used heavily within the Afro Caribbean areas of Nottingham and created a piece reminiscent of jewellery worn in those areas.
