Under Pressure

by Suzanne on May 27, 2011

So my fun has turned into a project thanks to Deborah Brearley.  She is organising a Moonah Exhibition on September 18 at the 135 Gallery.  That’s this year!  I was hoping to contribute a silver bowl or ladle sunk in a Moonah stump, however my workhorse  (see Stumped post) could take up to six months to be finished. It was transferred to the Neighbourhood House last week so I’ll be curious to see what the Men’s Shed make of it. 

With an exhibition looming, I’m now concentrating my efforts on the seed jewellery (see Seed of an Idea post).

The necklace above is really an exhibition piece, if accepted that is.  I might be getting a tad ahead of myself here! 

Inspired by the work I did on  mum’s letters, I’m going to add chain to separate the Moonah links. That would be a more wearable option.  Having said that, I so love that this necklace is all nature!  The complete opposite of the constructions I made when I studied in London (see Gallery). 

The Moonah exhibition, I’m hoping, will raise awareness of the plight of coastal Moonah.  For more information visit Moonahs Not Mulch.

I think people are intimidated by the thought of a blog, like maybe it means they have to reveal all thier deep dark secrets. You don’t, you can make it as personal or professional as you like. But show what you are working on, what you are looking at, and what you are thinking, and that is usually interesting to others…

The jewelry is beautiful and generous,I have made a lightbox, so that I can take pictures of my jewelries without depending on the sun.I need to do too much editing after to get things to look right. I should probably invest in better lighting really!You are so talented! I am literally lost for words – your pieces are so beautiful!

Thank you! I did buy a photo box to use with the lights in my workshop however, all I could see were the corner seams. I found it distracting!. I’ve come to the conclusion that my bench is the best background for my pieces. It’s already lit well. Having issues with some peole accessing this blog so I have a more extensive and easily accessible one here: http://thelaundrycollection.blogspot.com/
