EC One Unsigned Conpetition

Now in its third year, the EC One Unsigned competition has been launched and the ten finalists announced. It's a fantastic showcase of recent graduates and new talent and seeing the success of previous winners, Myia Bonner (2010) and Clarice Price Thomas (2011), it's not a surprise there has been some fantastic entries. Looking at all 10 finalists, here are my favourites ...

 
 
Taking inspiration from oriental decoration Annabelle's graduate collection sees delicate forms and bold geometry to create decadent yet versatile pieces.

 
 
Launched this year, the debut collection named 'Facets' is a combination of materials and techniques to produce a graphic and vibrant style.

 
 

Handcrafted jewellery created with an interesting concept. Inspired by Victorian mourning jewellery, Daniela takes undesired objects and transforms them into beautiful pieces of jewellery.
