Photo shoot

I have made a bunch of new jewellery for my Etsy shop.  It has been ready for a while, but I have not been ready to photograph it!

I have been looking at different ways of photographing my work, different backgrounds, different layouts, and I think I might be finally ready to take all of the photographs needed to get my work listed.

Wish me luck!

Community Necklaces

I moved to Mount Gambier from Adelaide last year, and it’s been a bit of an adjustment.  I didn’t realise how settled I was in Adelaide until we moved away!  All of the things I had taken for granted, such as my hairdresser, were no longer surrounding me.  My family, my friends, my children’s friends!

It made me wonder how on earth I was going to adjust to being in a new, smaller town.  Forming new friendships/relationships.  Finding a new hairdresser!

I think the one thing that always makes sense to me is making glass beads and jewellery, and so whenever I am feeling uncertain about myself I immerse myself in this.  I plan exhibitions or new pieces of jewellery. I think about what I want my art to say to the world.

When the South East Art Society announced their annual award exhibition I started thinking about how I could contribute to that.  I started thinking about my sense of community, and how that has been challenged in the past year.  I thought about how we are all part of many communities really.  I’m part of the “art” community in Mount Gambier, and I’m also part of the “school” community now that my daughter has started school.  I’m part of a community of “mums” too.

Well, there has been a lot of thinking about my exhibition piece, and here is the finished version.

Community Necklaces

I have been thinking a lot lately about the idea of being part of a community. Well, not just part of one community, but lots of different communities.  I decided to make a necklace that reflects my feelings about communities.
