Natural Coral pendant

Here you are! This is my final creation! I am very happy with the result. The natural coral works well with the african bone bead. And of course, there is no more apple hole.....
This piece will be on offer in my Etsy shop in the next few days or so.....

Creative Process

I am not very good at verbalizing my creative process because I would not have a clue what I am going to make until i sat down with materials and indulge myself in the process. This morning I sat down on my work bench and decided to make something out of the leftover sterling silver bits and pieces and some beads! I started to fiddle around and come up with some idea. I then engaged myself in a bit of sweat sawing and sanding the piece. Voila! I thought i got something. It remands me of one of the enviromental scuplture that i did. I saw a tree stump in a park, so I just lined up some green leaves that I found on the ground and had them walking all the way back to its branches! A very sad and romantic thought!

But there was something not quite right about it . The flower was working, the leaves and the stump was not too bad, may be it's the hole! It looked like an apple!!

So I came up with another idea and it works! I liked what i saw.........

I will post it once I got a good picture of the finish product.

design and the handmade

If you are around town (Sydney), don't forget to see the smart works exhibition in Powerhouse Museum. "It displays the inspirational work of 40 Australian and New Zealand designers and makers. It explores the choices and challenges that each of these individuals has faced in putting their work into production......"

Apart from the design exbition, there are lots of kids activities as usual.
