My mum was allowed to go to art college. When she told my grandparents of her plans my grandma walked out and didn’t return for days, certain that mum was going to become a drug addicted hippy. Art college led on to a degree in jewellery design and a career in London. Luckily for me my grandma backed down as now I have some of the most beautiful one off pieces of jewellery.
These are two of my favourites from when mum was studying…..and (to Nana’s relief) not addicted to drugs.
