I’m currently in an exhibition, running at one of my stockists; Arbor.
The show is titled The Design Journey, and features eight jewelers exploring and documenting the processes behind their work; their inspirations, workspaces, sketches, tools, prototypes etc.
It’s about examining how we get to the final product – beautiful jewellery.
It runs from the 1st – 31st August 2013, in conjunction with Craft Cubed, Craft Victoria’s annual festival of craft and design.
I thought I’d share my piece with you, and some images of the making process that got me there.
I am in love with these colours!
Even the random oil-slick that developed (back left) intrigues me.
Unfortunately, there is no way to seal this colour in place, without affecting its brilliance and vibrancy, so the colour will change and evolve over time, as it interacts with its environment.
In this instance, I actually really like the notion of it continuing to develop and evolve.
