It's been a busy couple of weeks jewelry wise. I had some work in a local Art Show over the Mother's Day weekend. I was fortunate enough to win Best Work in Jewelry and sold a few pieces. One shouldn't need it (of course we all do) but it's nice to get some validation. Does anyone else sometimes look at their work and go 'what the...?' I probably shouldn't say that here really ...
I've got several pieces lined up ready for the shop:
I bought some ceramic Buddha pendants from an etsy seller but didn't like the cases/lockets they came in, way too shiny. I decided to pop him on an oxidised copper backing and secure with wire. The only issue is whether the wire looks like I'm trying to imprison him - very un-zen if so. I do like the way it looks with the necklace of ribbon, beads and leather.
And with this piece I just went with the flow without any real pre-planning or idea of how it would turn out. Much like my life really
