Hackney S'crap' Project

For one of my current uni projects I visited an amazing warehouse in Hackney, which I can only describe as cave full of treasure… but instead of precious jewels, gold and diamonds it’s full of old, random crap and materials that we were allowed to take home for free!

The aim of the project- to gather as much of the random crap as possible, take it home and experiment by testing the properties and possibilities in order to create interesting forms and structures.

I came across a huge crate of miss-matched belt buckles and rummaged through them carefully selecting anything gold. After playing around with them for a while I decided to make them into something wearable and so turned them into necklaces, the result of which I’m rather happy with!

Stay tuned for more Hackney Scrap...
