These little hand tinted brooches or badges have been lovingly made by R. Stevenson. No, not THAT R. Stevenson, the world famous lighthouse engineer who also had a hand in the S&DR, but Rosalyn Stevenson.
Rosalyn is an artist and graphics designer who studied at Art College and then Salford University. She worked in television in Manchester and London and then lectured in Art and Design in London. She has left the capital now (so that she can have a dog) and is now creating distinctive and affordable art where each piece has an element that is recycled or made using found materials. Rosalyn based the designs of these badges on original 19th century engravings which we provided which she then hand tinted.
