A talented jewellery student from Milngavie has showcased her stunning creations at a public exhibition for the first time.

Eve Hendry, who is a jewellery and silversmithing student at Glasgow Clyde College, had several pieces of her work on show at the Cardonald Campus last week as part of the college’s Festival of Creative and Cultural Industries.

The 19-year-old said: “When I finish studying, I’d love to have my work featured in galleries so this was a great experience for me.

“It was a chance for me to see how my designs look on display and to hear what people think of them.”

Eve was inspired to apply for the Glasgow Clyde College course because her art teacher at school had completed the same qualification.

The former Douglas Academy pupil added: “I loved art when I was at school but didn’t really know what I wanted to do when I left. One of my teachers recommended the course to me as they had done it themselves and knew I was interested in learning how to make jewellery.”

Anne Clare Graham, senior lecturer at the college, said: “It’s really important that students are given the opportunity to experience the business side of pursuing a career as a jewellery designer or maker while still at college. Projects like this allow students to see what it is like to work in the industry or be self-employed and get feedback.”
