Between two cultures: a dialogue in jewellery

By Sarah O'Hana


This paper is concerned with the research I am carrying out at The University of Manchester‟s Laser Processing Centre, a project which emerged through a need to understand more about laser technology and its potential for use in the creative industries. My interest lies specifically with titanium and, being a jeweller this means finding answers for contemporary jewellery, but I have found that crucially, since I am based in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering, it is the dialogue between myself and the engineers and scientists that surround me that has enabled most of the progress. I therefore have to thank Professor Lin Li and Professor Andrew Gale for their continued support in this unusual venture
