I am busily beavering away making jewellery for an upcoming exhibition that is part of the SALA Festival at the end of the month. Today I had a visit from a studio fairy/assistant in the form of the lovely Miss Kath. The fairy filed and sanded without complaint and even shouted me lunch ( yummo tucker at Blonde ) and together we achieved a great deal. Here are some of the components we made that I hope to make into beaut jewellery very soon!
The reds are not showing up in the photos as vibrantly as they do in reality - they are actually quite bright. These enamels were all torch-fired - I just love the rustic look this gives the pieces!
This is not meant to look like some kind of internal organ - it is a wing and looks infinitely more wing-like in real life! It is quite long and will probably be strung fairly simply with one or two other components - still deciding what! All in all a very productive day and best of all, one spent with my buddy. Thank you oh whip cracking, nose-to-the-grindstone fairy - couldn't have done it without you!
