Jewellery exhibition in perspective

This is the invite to my exhibition, at Artisan contemporary gallery. I sent a copy of this to my sister Avril, who spun my world in a new light with one of her "avisms". She noted that for me seeing my jewellery in print must be the same as an actor/actress seeing their name in lights. She's right about that, i always feel like a exited child when i see my work in print or my name mentioned in articles. It makes me feel recognised. Something I'm sure we all strive for as artists.

Thanks Av

"A flowers love affair with the moon", a new theme for my jewellery

I am working on an exhibition at the moment that is themed "Fiction and Fairy tales", so I've decided to explore the "love affair that trailing flowers have with the moon".

It started when i saw a climbing flowering vine on one of my walks trailing along a fence. when i took photo's there was a day moon in the background and the tendrils of the plant seemed to be reaching and flowering for the moon's love, and approval. Trying hard to touch what seemed so far away. Sounds romantic....I know, but even my poetry has taken a turn for the romantic as I'm creating a poetry book called "falling in love with elements" and I've been slowly putting it together. It seems to have an affect on my work.

I'll put up a few pics of my work as i go along as well as final pics of the finished pieces and exhibition.
