Alexandra Emmeline Barnes

Alexandra passes the time with a multitude of creative hobbies that gave her the foundation to her jewellery style. Her paintings and writing paved the way for her craft and instilled a whimsical flair into the Infest Collection. Looking for the beauty in all things that scuttle and soar, Alexandra’s fascination was captured by the insects she saw in Edinburgh and Glasgow’s museums. This then materialised through her practice of embroidery and beadwork. Alexandra opts for more traditional methods of making with a contemporary uniqueness to delight varying generations of customers and clients.

Alexandra Emmeline Barnes graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2022 with First Class Honours.

Her Infest Collection has been exhibited at the International Graduate Show, Galerie Marzee (Netherlands) and was shortlisted for the John Byrne Award 2022.
