My degree work for CPUT, BTech 2009.
A couple newish pieces I managed to take quick photos of…
Finally its begun and my 1st piece is some what done… for now, I am deciding on possible changes but for now it remains like this. What it is is a pendant, the frame hollow constructed out of sterling silver and then set clear resin inside holding gold leaf.
My final year of 4th begun this week, part of the course is to document all our process…designing and writing of our research report. My report centers around jewellery objects, specifically the ‘jewellery heirloom’
Are heirloom jewels important to us, if they are,what makes them so important…
Its this importance that sparked my interest in this subject, I decided that it would be a good start to my research report for my Btech. (more…)
When I think about my support system, my family, those ones that watch over you, checking you are on the right road and all…all this these special people. They are the ones that remind me of all the immense abundance in the world.
This piece started out of that feeling, that feeling of one’s families love, support and guidance. I loved being able to ‘capture’ the gold leaf, suspended in a resin world. Gold leaf being rather delicate and fragile, is now held securely the clear solid hold of the plastic.
Once again, my motivation is to preserve a thought, an emotion, the feeling of acknowledgement. Acknowledging all that is in place, all that is solid, grounded and all that is unconditional love.
