Finding your place in the world, as a jewellery artist
Its been a year and half since i finished my B. Tech in jewellery design and manufacture and well i haven't had the chance to stop , until now that is, to think about my achievements, progression, my developments as an artist as well as the lessons learned.
I have recently had a spate of bugs and colds, the kind that if you didn't look after you'd end up in bed for a month......well now i know because i did end up in bed for a month. I am however a strong believer of " every thing happens for a reason" and fate which will tug and nudge you in directions just like a gusty autumn wind. It is this notion that has lead me on a windy path to this very point. The time i spent wallowing in bed was in fact well used. After convincing myself that i am not immortal after all and no half charged batteries would lead me to a miraculous recovery, i decided to take stock.
I seem to find my self in a state of conversation, whether it's written or verbal, thoughts or images, with others or myself, i am exploring my place in the world.
It is my hope that by me sharing my thoughts, views and experiences through this blog i can help and inspire other budding jewellery artist's.
