Stumbled across a fantastic piece of street art on the weekend, along side the M5 highway which runs through a greater area of Cape Town.
Love this piece so much, just had to share!
Would like to credit the artist but not sure who he or she is …
Thought it would be fun to pick my favourite items of jewellery from a couple of jewellers in Flickr. Having just recently started my own account, I was surprised by the amount of jewellers and creatives showing their great work off.
I am getting the ball rolling with my favourite rings from these very talented individuals …
Gonna briefly run through the selection, enjoy these stunningly inspirational rings:
Adrienne Weigmann, check out her Flickr as she has more great work posted.
Through out the last 4 years we are trained to produce industry drawings, with polycolour pencil and also watercolour.
I have a couple that I want to share to give you a taste of what I am able to do beside manufacturing jewellery.
Recently a jewellery blog , Jewels: An Appreciation of the Art, run by Katrina Morris added my work in a post entitled ‘A good thing is happening‘, go have a look and check it out.
On her site she features many unique and completely different jewellers and their work, exhibitions and other interesting features to do with the jewellery, have found there is always something visually enticing to find and knowledge to be gained!
I stumbled upon this book in CPUT’s library after a friend recommended I try get my hands on it. Anyway found it, went through it in awe so much so its overdue but wanted to share it as its a perfect visual look through fora and flora design within recent jewellery history.
The Jeweled Garden‘ published by Thames & Hudson, is must see for any lover of fine jewellery, visually its stunning and spans jewellery history from Victorians all the way through to present design.
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.
