Grace Lepard: Owl Shawl and Jewelry

Gorgeous handmade jewelry and accessory designed by St Martin's graduate Grace Lepard. Her collection is inspired by birds’ plumage and flight that she first draws in a notebook after a careful observation and then transferring them onto leather using acrylic inks, creating delicate statement pieces. 

Artist shares: “Birds - they are constantly moving or flying which makes it difficult for us to fully observe and appreciate their magnificent forms. The aim of my work is to capture and preserve the movement of their powerful yet fragile structures and their plumage by drawing and illustrating them directly onto leather."
