Blogroll and jeweller to the lost - sculpture and urban archaeology
bespoke, blogging, collections, ephemera, recycling, sculpture - public art, silver, the good things
Shanna was successful in her ‘art start’ grant proposal, early in 2013. Both Barbara and I mentored her in all aspects of her business / jewellery start up. We have been mates for quite some time now and have followed her work. The piece of wood we gave Shanna is from our old store in Tunbridge, Tasmania. Water etched and with traces of old paint, this piece if timber fits with her aesthetic, beautifully. We thought that some of the grant fee we earned should be put back into Shanna’s own practice so we commissioned an object in response to the timber piece. It was delivered last week but we still have no idea about her title, we shall all wait for a comment + feedback. Between us, we have wonderful examples of local jewellers work. In fact we have pieces buy everyone who has ever spent studio time with us over the years.

Blogroll and jeweller to the lost - commisions

This lovely Barbara Heath ring sustained a serious blow to the side and the entire double set of grids moved considerably. The task was to work out just what element had to be coaxed back first and then work to align all the angles. Handmade in 18ct yellow gold with oxidised 925 silver – sending this much loved and well worn ring home today in an express bag.

There are numerous sizes and options to Barbara’s handmade ‘bar & ring ‘ clasps. Textured and plain in multiple metal options, some with gems set in the ring clasp – here we have handmade 925 Silver with Dr Gael Phillips’ oval antique ‘millefiori’ Venetian beads. Ready-to-wear anywhere (and dance floor strength into the bargain).

Go Madeleine and Nadia et al . . . they have visited home and studio this week to do my own Q&A and looked into my ephemera archive for Issue 5 content.
