Munich.

















So a few weeks ago I spent a very long weekend in Munich for Schmuck, which as some of you guys may know is a big old contemporary jewellery festival thing. Schmuck was amazing it seemed like every contemporary jeweller across the world made the, dare I say it, pilgrimage to Munich to see the incredible pieces exhibited. I will be doing a follow up post telling you exactly which pieces I fell for (as well as my continuing crush of Gallerie Platina), but for now I wanted to bring to you some of the new inspiration I found in the beauty of Munich itself.

‘Often Wounded, Sometimes destroyed’.









Photos: Peace Buzzard


I am fascinated in the transience of our surroundings. In objects that show a battered, forgotten life: proudly displaying their impermanence, but going unnoticed. Over time we repair ad mend. A fresh coat of paint, filling a cracked wall. Inevitably these fixes themselves deteriorate, but in this we gain something new, something different from the original. In this collection I focus on this balance of the resilient with fragility. How we protect the damaged or allow it to continue alone in its decline. As much as time deteriorates, there will always remain a sense of what was there before.

Deteriorate.

 Photos of my last collection of rings. Continuing with the beauty in decay idea. Things change and i find it really interesting to make something that will knowingly change through wearing. The idea that it will get in the way, pick up little nicks here and there.

Stockholm.

A couple of months back i was super lucky and got to go to Stockholm for a long weekend. Such a nice city with lovely people and some amazing shops and galleries. Got to go to Weekday for the first time, eek! But more importantly I was able to visit Gallery Platina. So, so nice! When i was there they were showing the Karin Johansson, Abstractions of a City Exhibition, really interesting!

Tools.

Went to the recycling centre with my dad the other day and found this! Its taking a while to clean up, but at least i get to look at some lovely rust whilst doing so! If any of you guys have seen my pinterest account you will know that I'm a sucker for rust and decay so it's all good. I've been using vinegar to help me clean it and i left it the other day with these kitchen towels soaked in vinegar on it, look how beautiful they came out. I almost don't want to clean it up, just make more pretty rust pictures, but I know that when its done I will have a happy new home for some of my tools!

Some photos taken whilst clearing out my gran's house. The house looked strangely beautiful once striped back and bare. Aged and coming apart.
