The garden I was looking at bloomed while I was sketching it. Pinks, purples, reds, and oranges opened into life in front of me. Each day I was excited to wake up and see the changes happening outside, and then one day I started to see my sketches differently......I started to add metal to them. I was twisting wire that represented movement, change, and growth. I was making these little wire tornado like earrings, so I started sewing them onto my sketches. They became these little objects for your wall......a huge stray off of my regular path. Something I wasn't even quite sure I was comfortable with, but it felt right so I kept making them.
When I was presenting this work at our dinner in Renkum one of the artists there suggested I view it as jewelry for your wall, which I loved!
So here it is, your first glimpse at my Jewelry For Your Wall and the blooming gardens which inspired them.
