|What is the weight of this pendant with chain?|
Last week I blogged about Alison Branagan's books on business for Artists and Designers, so I thought I would tell you about another book which is providing me with a lot of inspiration at the moment. We all get our inspiration from many diverse directions and I get a lot of mine from naturally occurring forms, such as the bark of a tree or a lichen formation.
This book, which I received for my birthday at the end of last year, is proving to be such a source of ideas, even if I only use a colour combination or a small pattern repeat from within the pages. If colour and texture are your thing too, then give it a try.
It's called Heaven & Earth, Unseen by the Naked Eye by Phaidon and contains stunning photographs of our planet and us, but mostly from the inside!
Do you remember the piece from my Signature Collection I showed you last week? Well this week I have used to same form but in shades of yellow ochre, green and blue, forged it and also designed a pin through it to make a very desirable brooch which would look sensational against black clothing with simple lines. The oval head of the pin is made from heavily reticulated silver and perhaps I'll post some pictures of it next week. I've also been working on some simple aluminium adjustable band rings and some not so simple ones!! Pics next week!
Hope you all have a good week - competition results Sunday night!
