work, work, work

The studio is coming along swimmingly. My friend J has finally moved in and was painting the space on Monday whilst I was completing an order for one of my stores. Most exciting. I have been working trying to complete all the production work so that I can start to experiment. I have it in my head that I need to start making some new works, I have been playing with the idea of fluid movement and using leather, resin, wood and precious materials to realise my ideas.

So I feel like my life is just about work at the moment. I work 2 days selling metal to jewellers, novices and students. I have a story every time I finish this job. Favourite story so far is when one person rang up to ask about having a 30cm chain as an anklet, I ask you, why would anyone in their right mind want to accentuate an ankle of such large proportions? Perhaps they need to have a neon saying here is my ankle, isn't it grand!

This leaves 5 days, one day I am studying trade jewellery at Enmore TAFE (more on that at a later date), 3 days in the studio. And so I can have some sort of down time, I have decided to have Sunday off.
