Large format images

Since January, I have been working on two very large images (amongst other things).

These are both 115cm x 115cm and are watercolour, pencil and collage on sewn Arches paper, 300 gsm.

The top one, was entered into the Sulman Prize but sadly was not selected as a finalist.  The second one is a private commission which was approved on Sunday and is now getting framed.

I must admit it was extremely scary to work on these and at this size but I am very pleased with the results.

New jewellery - pendants

I have been working on more jewellery designs.  There was a call for more pendants from a friend so here is a selection from the latest crop.

These are pendants on necklaces made from tiny gemstone beads: coral (deep red), turquoise (greeny-blue), agate (brown, fluoro green), serpentine (dark green), and onyx (black). 

The focal beads are Indian cut stones mostly bought in Bangkok, Kathmandu and some odd flea market finds: turquoise nuggets,  carnelian (orange), coral, vintage cilver filigree, rose quartz, ancient Syrian glass, pearls and agate.

These are made with the autumn season in mind - they are to wear over a shirt or polo/turtle neck.
Although the colours and design make them very unique and eye catching, I have made a stand against those big, bulky resin pendants you now see everywhere.

These are one offs and made from sterling silver and gemstones.

Prices around $70.  They aren't on a website yet.
