Self portraits

A long time ago someone told me jewelry works should start as guache renderings.

That’s not my creative process. In fact, 9 times out of ten if an assignment had to be handed in with drawings or renderings, I made the object first and then drew it after the fact.

This is my creative process:

“Self Portrait: The artist models her jewelry while ripping her hair out.”

Mhm!

From all Angles

When I was in school I was thoroughly fed up with this idea that jewelry had to mean something. I always said ” why can’t things just be pretty?”. Apparently even when I try to rebel I get pulled back in.

This piece came about after a lot of reflection on things coming full circle, and having to review all situations from all angles. The human body is “in the round” and is not meant to be viewed only from one angle.

Once in a while you need to face things- people – situations etc face on and give them a full frontal view, but there’s no reason not to give them something interesting to reflect on as you’re walking away.

 

[or maybe I'm full of it and own something backless I plan to wear this with....one can never be certain darling.]

 

Back to creation

After a bit of a hiatus I started putting together a new series, this one to be made mostly in sterling silver, with the occasional gemstones, gold plating and possibly some enamels if I can get back into it. I’ve started working full time in CAD again and am excited to show you two of the latest pieces. Stay tuned for more, this years goal is to get better at this blogging thing ;-)
