After some essential exhibition organising this morning, i’ve finally made it to the studio! Today I’m re-drilling a hole that I had to fix as the first one was a miniscule millimetre out! This set me back a few hours, which just shows how precise and patient you need to be to create jewellery. I’ve got the patience, I’m still working on the latter. Ince I have drilled.the hole, its on to the next stage of making a hinge.
Since the term began I have been hard at work for an exhibition we are organising as part of my course. The exhibition is entitled ‘Ubiquitous Assimilation’ and the work is in response to the brief ‘Miniature Collections’. I decided to carry on looking into lovers padlocks, which led me naturally to think about lockets. I liked the idea of creating jewellery with the aesthetic of a padlock but the meaning and function of a locket. I’m really excited about the exhibition as I have some ideas to make it interactive with the viewer.
