new ventures.....Jewellery


What i wore.....
So this is what i wore today, primark trousers, a charity shop top that i revamped with lots of studs. I lost my glasses today in the mass of paper and paint whilst doing etsy orders, painting and drawings.

I have had a very long and slightly stressful day trying to hold all the little bits of my life together. Well i have finally found the time to sit down and think about a few things, i am really wanting to take the time to work on a new design idea, i want to create my own brand of jewellery, hand-make all of it. A rather ambious idea, i have always made my own jewellery from vintage, second hand and new pieces. It wasnt till i started reading NYLON  again and i bought  two bracelets from H&M (Which can i say i never do, i am more of a window shopper) it was suede and gold and i thought to myself i can make this so why not give it a go?. I realized that with my brothers skills as a sadler, he could help me create bespoke leather, studded and fine jewelry pieces.

I want to keep my illustrations going, i love illustration, but my other love is Jewellery, so i really want to explore the possibility of sharing these with people. I am going to teach myself more about fine jewellery making like casting and silversmithing. I need to find what i want to do, what my path is and how to get where i want and need to be.....
Once again i wish to revert back to the text of Eat, pray, love, to help me find my way:

"But Toni Morrison made her own path, and i must make mine. The Bhagavad Gita - that ancient Indian Yogic text- says that it is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else's life with perfections"
