by lamp-light....


...now that the clocks have turned back, I am working much of the day in the workshop by lamp light - it is raining so much here too, so even the beautiful light mornings seem rare - it makes for very yellow photos, hence the b & w here. This is how I amuse myself through the hours and hours of filing and sawing...arranging the pieces I am working on in sets, orders and shapes as I go. Makes me think about all the patterns I could make out of the motifs and sometimes the spaces in between make me think about new shapes and possibilities....

Like I said, long hours ;))

Happy Thursday, and hello November [um, how did that happen!?]

I hate when we turn the clock back. It gets so dark. The other day I made some tea and sandwiches and sat down in front of the tv, I thought it was much later. It was only program for kids :))
Lovely photo even without sunlight. *

That is a gorgeous photo! All your photos are always beautiful though. ;) Arranging things is a way I think many creative types use to pass the long hours. :) I know I do when I've locked myself in my room to work on things.

Happy November 1st!! :)

Lovely! Yes, I arrange mine as well! It gives me a giddy thrill to look at many pieces together and I love to arrange them according to series. To show the gradiating, subtle differences from piece to piece, to pick favourites, etc.

What a brilliant idea! Next christmas you will be printing wallpaper! Just discovered your blog having been a big fan of your jewellery for a while, and so am enjoying it immensely.
