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.

This design is steller! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.

Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Excellent job.
I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that,
how you presented it. Too cool!
Here is my weblog ... perfumes
