Well 2015 has started on high for girlwithbeads as my work is featured in the new Royal Academy RAted range!!
RAted is the Royal Academy’s showcase for emerging British design talent, with hand-picked items from up-and-coming designer-makers.
Emily Rubner, from the Royal Academy, explains "In 2014, we asked the brightest UK-based design talents to submit their most distinctive products to be selected for the inaugural RAted “Open Call” range. We were looking for the finest quality, and; originality in; form and function. The RA’s award-winning retail team whittled down nearly 300 applicants to a group of 34, who presented their products to us at an Open Call at the RA in September 2014. We were extremely impressed with the quality and variety of original designs and the high standard of the submissions. Our team had difficulty selecting the very best, but we’re delighted to reveal the first 2015 RAted range."
Four of my designs will be available for sale from the Royal Academy Shop from 26th January. See for yourself here: http://shop.royalacademy.org.uk/girl-with-beads
