Inside the Engine Room- Creating Jewels in my Studio.
I'm on holidays at the moment. It's a perfect opportunity to retreat inside my own personal 'Engine Room' & create some artworks & ready-to wear jewels. To be honest, I haven't been too productive so far. I've been much too focussed on flogging myself at yoga-style gym classes. In a bid to remove any trace of middleaged arms, I've done a whole lot of 'Downward Dogs' & 'Plank' poses.
But with less than a week left of the holiday, I've got to forget the arms & get my creative arse into gear. I've set a goal of making five necklaces by the end of the holiday. I'm taking some images of 'Louis Vuitton' jewels found in 'New York' magazine for inspiration. Peter, from 'Zinc', my local cafe, kindly showed me the pictures & said surely I could make something similar for a fraction of the price. What a challenge!
I'll show you the results when I've finished.
