Frances Andrews

The ACJ has recognized the emerging talent on show at 2012 New Designers by awarding a prize.


The ACJ’s Mark Fenn Award for 2012 was presented to Frances Andrews who is graduating this year from Duncan of Jordanstone College, Dundee. Her ‘Wear / Worn’ collection explores the notion of temporary and transient jewellery; creating items that can be worn but are ultimately impermanent. There is no ‘finished piece’: the materials she has used; graphite, flowers and transfers, are all subject to change, influenced by the wearer and the environment.

The photo above shows Frances and Terry with her tutor, Tina Ramsey, who is wearing one of Frances’ transfer neckpieces.
