Day 213. All set up at @stationmaster5255 gallery for @salafestival 2020! I am so grateful that this exhibition has gone ahead this year. I have had a lot of fun making the beads and jewellery for this exhibition. The gallery is open every day from 10am until 4pm, so hit the road and check it out! Let me know what you think.
Day 212. I think I am ready to set up my @salafestival exhibition! Today I have to label and price each item. I have made 52 new pieces of jewellery for this exhibition! I can’t wait to see it all installed at @stationmaster5255 gallery tomorrow. Ready for viewing August 1!
Day 211. Experiments with earrings….looks good on paper, a few issues with the construction, still needs to be fully resolved before I can make a pair. But, it’s a step in the right direction, better than just being on paper.
Day 210. Dreamy summer ocean colours…
Day 209. Setting up my @salafestival exhibition on Friday. You will be able to see it every day in August at @stationmaster5255 gallery in Strathalbyn from 10-4.
Day 208. I have used all sorts of colours in these wave/ocean beads, as you can see in the bracelet and necklace. For some reason this golden colour has captured my eye today and I made two pairs of earrings!
Day 207. Continuing my pearl and transparent glass obsession.
Day 206. I tried a different enamelling technique this morning and “wow” very happy with the result. I started with my standard technique of using one colour on one end, and then a different colour on the other end. When I was finished I had little bits of enamel leftover and I thought that rather than trying to get them back in their bags, I would just mix them all together! And then I went back and gave each tube a little bit of extra enamel, and it’s tricky to tell in the photo but it’s a lovely mix of colours and makes the tube look really interesting. Handmade glass beads from a wine bottle.
Day 205. I love all of the colours in today’s earrings! The necklace is still a work in progress, the beads are not quite lining up the way I would like them to, needs a bit of tweaking.
Day 204. Pearls done slightly differently. I am slowly getting some work ready for my @salafestivalexhibition at @stationmaster5255
