A JEWELLERY designer from Bewdley is through to the finals of the Midlands Fashion Awards.

Jac Brazier, who owns online jewellery business Scarlett Willow Designs, has been announced as a finalist in the accessories category of the awards, which celebrate independent, emerging and creative talent from across the region.

Jac takes inspiration for her statement and bespoke silver jewellery from the forest she walks through every day with her dogs.

She said: "I am really excited to be a finalist in the Midlands Fashion Awards. I am always looking at ways to elevate my business and to have my jewellery recognised in this way is incredible."

The awards will take place on October 11 at Birmingham Symphony Hall and Jac is one of 42 finalists.

There are some high-profile fashion judges at the finals, including award-winning hairdresser Lisa Shepherd, from Kidderminster.

Matt Wilson, a Kidderminster-based photographer, will also be judging the fashion photography category.
