...and this is the whole piece so far...
...you will see that everyone else before me has worked landscape but I was moved to work portrait. I'm not sure if that was my artistic muse or my resistance to following the trend! ;o) I'm looking forward to seeing all the completed pieces and I'm hoping to get to Sheffield for Becky's degree show. ;o)
This week I'm over at Mildenhall air base for three days of selling along with my photographer/artist friend, Rob. We've been selling at Lakenheath air base for the few two months and are giving Mildenhall a try this month. The set up at Mildenhall is different to Lakenheath where I have a booth with wall hanging space as well as table display space. I won't have as much room at Mildenhall so I will concentrate on my jewellery with just a few small free standing assemblage pieces if space allows. My lovely friend, Kath, has loaned me these little torsos to add a bit of interest to my display:
Although I have been quite successful sales wise at Lakenheath I do think I need to work on how I display my work, make my displays more interesting and attention grabbing.
This is my latest pendant created from reclaimed necklace and earring parts with some vintage text and vintage copper wire:
On Friday Kath and I are teaching a jewellery workshop locally for teenage girls. I love the workshops we do with kids, it's always a joy to see them getting stuck in, using their innate creativity and imagination to create fabulous work and have a fun time doing it. Working with Kath is the other joy of these workshops, we're a good team and our artistic and teaching styles, although quite different, compliment each other really well. We always have a good time and lots of laughs on the days we work together. ;o)
