Poppy Porter

We are living in an age where jewellery making has become a lot more high tech, whether it be where the inspiration came from or the techniques used. Take Poppy Porter, for example. Poppy, from Guildford in Surrey, uses a signature photo-inlay process for her innovative creations. Vibrant, photographic prints, that are initially taken from photos of Formula 1 cars are then transformed into prints based on the sound recorded from the car’s engine. The main jewellery itself is created from anodised titanium and plays on her love of Formula 1 and Japanese geometry. The outcome is captivating like a robotic butterfly but also nostalgically child-like. Does anybody remember rainy days building things out of meccano?
