i've been slowly but surely trying to prepare for the Queen West Art Crawl show in September. like a lot of artists i know, i work better under pressure...in a way i think i've been given too much time, and that makes me work slower than i'd like to. i guess you could say that i like to move frantically with purpose. when i did the Toronto Outdoor Show last year i had six weeks to create dozens of new designs and pieces of jewellery. to say i was stressed out is an understatement.
for some reason, ideas for necklaces always come first to me. i always have way more of them than any other style of jewellery. i kind of struggle with designs for rings and earrings since there are always issues of weight and size.
isn't it weird how different things can look just by changing their orientation?
