Ford commissioned Katherine to create a unique piece of vintage-style Ford jewellery as part of the Ford Centenary Tour, celebrating 100 years of Ford of Britain.

Katherine Hawkins, a 26 year old design who runs Creme Nouveau from a studio in St Columb Major, has created a unique piece of jewellery out of Ford Focus car parts.

Ford commissioned Katherine to create a unique piece of vintage-style Ford jewellery as part of the Ford Centenary Tour, celebrating 100 years of Ford of Britain.

The one-off necklace features rhinestones and crystals with reversed instrument dials, needles, nuts, bolts and springs, on a template made from car seat material.

Katherine said: "When the box of car parts arrived, I didn't really know what to expect. It doesn't help that I can't actually drive so at first I didn't know what the parts were for! But once I got them spread out to see how they look and sit and how I could work with them, the idea came very quickly and I was able to use really cool metals, plastics and rubbery bits!"

The Ford Centenary Tour ended in September having covered 2200 miles across Britain, From Inverness to Southampton and Cardiff to London.
