Blog roundup

6 11 2015

Its been many moons since my last blog roundup post …

Going through my Links page, I’ve found the following to move from ‘current’ to ‘hibernating’; listed here for posterity:

Moving these from ‘hibernating’ back to ‘current’ … it’s unusual!

And the following have been removed, as they’ve not been updated in a year or more:

I’ve also gone through all website links and removed those that no longer work.
And changed NMIT to Melbourne Polytechnic (bit late!).

Happy reading.

Blog roundup

6 12 2014

Oh dear readers, I fear this may be the last Blog Roundup post. There just aren’t that many blogs around any more, and those that are around are only being rarely updated, with notable exceptions:

  • Katherine Bowman is one of the few bloggers still updating regularly – this makes me happy, for I do love her work
  • my other favourite, David Neale, is only rarely updating these days
  • the most excellent Melissa Cameron continues to engage with readers; thank goodness really, she’s an incredibly important source of competition information and such, and is critically interested in so many aspects of making – if you’re not already regularly reading her, you ought to
  • in non-blog writing, I have discovered The Jewellery Activist … the authors sometimes writes, though mostly collects images and writing from other jewellery-related sources; definitely worth your regular visit

Tell me if you’ve found interesting sites recently.

Sigh … I do think it’s time I joined instagram, as that seems to be where all the young kids are posting nowadays … though it does lack the written element I enjoy even more than the images.

I’ve moved those blogs that haven’t updated for near six months into the ‘Hibernating’ group on the Links Page.

I’ve also retired a bunch that haven’t updated in over a year … though for posterity I include their links below:

Note that many of those still making of course have websites and/or tumblr and/or instagram and/or facebook and the like…

Blog roundup

A few things I’ve enjoyed reading lately:

I’ve noticed that oodles of makers are taking up instagram … perhaps I need a new listing … something to think about …

A number of blogs haven’t been updated for over a year, and so they’re being removed from the listing but have been listed here for posterity:

I’ve also checked every website link and deleted those that don’t exist anymore.
If your site isn’t on my links page please let me know – I’d love to add it.

Also, check out the ‘Meet the Maker’ series in The Age newspaper.

Blog roundup

10 04 2014

It’s pretty quiet on the blogging front … but a few nice things to read

  • I like the photograph enamel pieces by Anne Dinan
  • Wit Myt is on fire! creating STD necklaces and recycled spoon pieces
  • Emma Grace writes about what makes for sustainable making – this has some really important tips and points
  • I absolutely love Katherine Bowman’s first post in her new (hopefully long-lived) series of interviews of owners of pieces commissioned from her about their wearing experience
  • I’m pretty sure I’ve said it before, but I do believe that Kim Victoria Wearne is single-handedly making opals something to desire and covet again – love her pieces; strangely I was convinced she was part of our Oh Opal!‘ group exhibition in 2011, but it seems I was imagining that (or wishing it was so)
  • Lucy James is just a damn delight I tell you!
  • check out Naomi Rachel Muirhead‘s ‘Schmuck 2014‘ reports

Let me know if you’ve spotted some new jewellery blogs not already on my links page.

Happy reading.
