A WOMAN from Mull will em­bark on a trip of a life­time in Septem­ber, when she spends a month study­ing in Mex­ico.

Hannah Jayne, 23, from Tobermory, won the F and A Brad­shaw Award that is given to a grad­u­ate of the Dun­can of Jor­dan­stone Col­lege of Art and De­sign.

Hannah, who makes jew­ellery un­der the name Hanye Jew­ellery, was cho­sen after she sub­mit­ted a pro­posal to study in Guadala­jara for two weeks to work with a pres­ti­gious de­signer.

‘I still don’t know how they picked me,’ she said.

‘The course I’m at­tend­ing is in the Hard To Find jew­ellery stu­dio which is a new and con­tem­po­rary stu­dio that opened roughly five years ago in Guadala­jara, Mex­ico. The course I’m do­ing is a jew­ellery il­lus­tra­tion course which is taught by Bar­bara Broc­chi, whose il­lus­tra­tions have fea­tured in Vogue, Grazia and var­i­ous other pub­li­ca­tions.’

The for­mer Tobermory High School pupil added: ‘My pro­posal was to spend two weeks in Guadala­jara, study­ing un­der Ital­ian artist Bar­bara Broc­chi and to ex­plore the city. They awarded me a full £2,816 to do it.

‘I’m gob­s­macked that I’ve been cho­sen. It was an ab­so­lute sur­prise. I’ve never trav­elled this far be­fore and I’m ex­cited to see and ex­plore Mex­ico.

‘My goal is to come back to Mull and cre­ate a new col­lec­tion of work in­spired by my time in Guadala­jara.’

Hannah is head­ing for Guadala­jara.
