Yarnbomb IV

26 01 2015

According to my own rules on yarn-bombing, I recently refreshed my rainbow pole outside the local school.

The crochet version lasts so much longer than a knitted version, and so I left it to replace until just before school starts again.

Above: old one and new one … see how I once again put the colours upside-down … tricky!

If you’re ever in the ‘hood, I hope it makes you smile as you pass by.





Art Jewellery Challenge, day 5

25 01 2015

Facebook Art Jewellery Challenge was started by Donna Greenberg in the hope of capturing a diversity of what is happening around the world of art jewellery. I was nominated by Claire O’Halloran (thank you lovely!) so for 5 days I will show some of my jewellery and each day I will also nominate another artist to show us their jewellery.
..
Day Five : ‘Show Off’ (2012) ; made for the ‘Art of the Cuff’ exhibition at Lord Coconut; some of the silver/paper weaving I have a particular affinity to
..
I wish I could have nominated so many people, though many were already nominated and some aren’t even on FB (I know!). #‎ArtJewelleryChallenge‬

Day Four : Exhibit #5, Quilted Fragment (2006) ; “The motif used in these fragments is strikingly similar to that in Exhibit #1.  As such, the two groups together have been used to derive a possible detail of the extended pattern.  The black colouring of the textile is most unusual for this region, with most work done in white or brightly colour fabric.  As such, these fragments are somewhat of a rarity.”; another piece from my third year jewellery collection
..
Today I nominate Marina Antoniou Jewellery, to show us one of her beautiful creations and nominate an inspiring jeweller every day for five days. ‪#‎ArtJewelleryChallenge‬
