I've just sent some new jewellery to two galleries down south. These silver Rope Rings are now available to buy from Artifex in Birmingham and the Biomorph earrings and necklaces from Franny and Filer in Manchester.
My Biomorphs are inspired by the forms and colours found in the surrealist art of Desmond Morris, Wassily Kandinsky, Yves Tanguy and Joan Miro. Each one is made individually from sterling silver and filled with resin, which is dyed, shaped and finished by hand so every Biomorph is unique. The word Biomorph was coined by Desmond Morris who used it to descibe something which is not quite plant but not quite animal either, something in between. Please visit my website here>> to see more Biomorph designs.
I have an evening in the workshop to do now, with pizza, getting some kilt pins, cufflinks and bangles ready for posting to the assay office for hallmarking. And then a couple days to get lots of other odds and ends tied up, bags packed, shirts ironed and shoes polished for I have a busy couple of weeks ahead of me!
On Friday I'm off to Helmsdale with a few members of the ACJ for a day of gold panning on Saturday, then returning on Sunday to go straight to Edinburgh for five days on the Drum Major course at the Army School of Bagpipe Music and Highland Drumming (hence the show polishing and ironing! should perhaps add 'buy port' to that list too) then home again on Friday night to change kilts for Pitlochry games on the Saturday, really keen to camp in Pitlochry since it's the last competition of the season but that I'll decide when I see the weather forecast, then back to Edinburgh for another five days of drum majoring! Phew! And already the 'to do' list for my return is looking rather daunting!
Stand at ease, Stand easy!
