A designer’s book of self-assignments prompts us to learn by doing
For all of my deigner friends who get stuck in a rut and need something fun to get the mojo back :)
Been working with claw and peg earrings today. Using both London and Swiss Topaz and some lovely Iolite to make these pieces. Look out for them in my etsy store soon.
Sat at the workbench today and notice that I had drilled a random hole in one of the rings I’d made ages ago. Then inspiration hit me and I start cutting this little fellow out. Not sure if he’ll be going up for sale but if anyone wants him he’s size S1/2 and the band is 5mm wide
Had a wonderful day at Newbury craft market today. Treated myself to this little cutie from Carol Hansen Art :) carolhansenart.com
This beautifully written book has captured my imagination. A narrative taken straight from the workbench/sketchbook it has ignited my need to design, and get making new and more exciting things.
