An eclectic collection of teensy found objects has been perfectly arranged by Grainne Morton to create a fascinating pin. Begging for a closer look, the miniatures include a shell, bead, rhinestone, teensy hand painted tile, a cameo and a coin. Encased in a little compartment formed by the oxidized sterling silver grid, they are protected by a thick piece of beveled glass.

EDINBURGH - Inspired by her vast menagerie of found items, Grainne Morton has constructed a riveting collection based on the miniature object. Using a diverse range of materials, each element - from the familiar to the obscure - is part of a whole which, she hopes, evokes a feeling of nostalgia, memory and triggers a thoughtful interaction. The result is an eclectic arrangement fueled by imagination and creating a collection of one-of-a-kind pieces to wear and to view.
