Abstract

This project aimed to examine if community projects can have a positive impact on art jewellery practice. This was done through the development of a community project with a group of Irish Traveller women, in collaboration with Brent Irish Advisory Services (B.I.A.S.) and a number of volunteers. This was then treated as a case study and analysed. A qualitative research approach was taken, within a naturalistic context and the project was further contextualized by investigating a selection of other jewellers' practices. The objects made during the project were not treated as data, though professional reviews were carried out on completion. The project led to the
development of a new collection of jewellery and a book inspired by my experiences.
