Sally McAdam's Profile
I'm Sally and I design and make acrylic jewellery. I like to use bright colours and multiple layers of acrylic to make bright, unique jewellery with a retro feel. I've also recently branched out into enamel pin badges and stationery.
I live in Glasgow with my boyfriend Keith and my cats Harry and Chi. I like shiny things, comics, custard creams, dinosaurs, making a mess, tartan shirts, robots, video games, handstands and a really good cup of tea.
I design my jewellery myself, firstly scribbling my ideas onto paper then turning my favourite ones into vectors using Inkscape. I then send these designs to be laser cut from bright 3mm acrylic sheets. When my newly cut shapes arrive I then glue the pieces together to form the final piece. Sometimes they don't quite work the first (or second, or even third!) time and I have to alter the vector drawing…
