Things that I’m working on these days

Autumn has its own way to inspire us don't you think? Besides working on my regular orders, I've enjoyed some quiet time thinking, sketching and playing with wax.

Exploring & Making

Exploring & Making

I seem to be getting through circles of exploring new territory and then getting back to the studio ready to get my tools and return to the making process.

Back to the studio, I've started working on a custom branch ring and finished a custom pair of labradorite earrings. I have also made a labradorite ring for the same wonderful lady that I forgot to post earlier, so there it is!

I think I'm starting to develop a new obsession with feathers! These were collected recently during my morning runs.

And I finally got a chance to make a single earring with this amazing jay feather that we found in the woods. I'm keeping this one for me but if I happen to find more, I'll be happy to make more feather jewelry.

Autumn is in the air

Autumn is in the air

After an epic hike to the top of Olympus mountain, I'm back feeling completely rejuvenated. The signs of autumn are definitely here: shorter daylight, crisp weather and the first rains after a long dry spell.

I always enjoy this time of year. The significantly lower temperature makes working in the studio much easier. The back to school feeling, without actually having to go back to school, makes me want to get organised, plan and think of new projects….it also makes me want to purchase more stones, which is another usual side effect!

Macrame

After finishing the fish bracelet, a new macrame obsession started emerging!

My plan is to try a variety of patterns and improve my skills. Then I would love to combine macrame with metalwork and see where it takes me.
