I really think all this warm weather is having an effect on me (despite my being indoors most of the time!)..just look at my flickr favourites..what a yellow bias there is, it has just crept up on me somehow! *beam*Here are some canvases that I printed up with my pattern designs to go to a show (just to accompany this time..no jewellery work on them as I couldn't send them in their heavy glass cases)....I am currently working on some new pattern designs to inspire some new forms and work for the forthcoming show. It has been so long since I have made a new pattern, as each has such mileage for jewellery designs to take from it. But I love pattern...so it's nice to be doing this once more.
I thought I would share a link to one of my all-time favourite artist jewellers - Bettina Speckner's work is just beautiful, and is very high end gallery 'art' work. I first saw her work in person when I visited Munich in Germany (where she shows a lot) and was blown away..(the backs of her pieces are as beautiful as the fronts)..they are like little paintings, such wonderful compositions, and I love the photographic etchings and transfers and use of material..so delicious!
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend...I will be working, as I have lots to make, but as I can look out the window at the beautiful blossom rain..it really ain't all bad at all!
hugs to all xox
