A great example of this is the jewellery of Italian Designer, Maria Cristina Bellucci. Her collection, "Colours" is all about exploring colour pencils. I think her investigation into this simple, everyday material is so clever. Her designs uniquely reveal different qualities of coloured pencils, exploiting colour, form and texture. Her jewellery is beautifully crafted, ensuring her ideas are well executed.
If you're in Melbourne, she happens to have some of her work at Bini Gallery on Smith St in Collingwood at the moment. Woo hoo for us! Otherwise, click here to visit her website.
