Cecilia Stamp’s candy coloured, powder coated lapel pins and earrings take their inspiration from Glasgow’s subway system - the third oldest underground system in the world. Cecilia utilises the industrial technique of powder-coating to bring her nuanced flair for colour to the pieces and to reflect the aesthetics of industry and transport at the heart of her commission. Wearers can combine the three complementary colourways of yellow, pink and blue with Cecilia’s lapel pins and earrings. “Consisting of only a circular line, the Subway network faithfully serves Glaswegians and tourists alike and is a part of everyday life. I wanted to use the language of industry to create a wearable accessible jewellery collection that acts as a souvenir of the city”
Run of lapel pins (in 3 colourways), Statement earrings - 3 colourways. Powder coated brass and steel.
