At certain times in my life I’m drawn to certain colours from the clothes I wear to my eye makeup right through to the jewellery I create. (I am addicted to eyeshadow and eyeliner… but that’s another story.)
The pieces are dominated by the colour Blue….
Other recent work also includes working with Enamel, with my new online shop collection ‘IcedGems’ developed from a collection called ‘Bold & Bright’ (On show and on sale at Victoria Sewart Gallery in Plymouth) and that was directly informed by experimental pieces entitled ‘Blue and Green should never be Seen?’
The colour Blue has featured in all these ranges…. yet my work keeps evolving into something new. The colour acts as a memory and link to previous work along with an underpinned aesthetic.
There are tones and colour families that resonate, repeat and revive themselves almost intuitively within my portfolio whilst I continue to make jewellery.
At the moment I must be going through a Blue phase…this hasn’t consciously been intentional and it’s interesting to look at my work retrospectively, perhaps it runs deeper than a crush! Now whether it means I need to take note of the following;
‘Listen to yourself and others. Be honest and ask others to be honest too. Keep your eyes, ears and mind open to new opportunities.
Downfall: Don’t withdraw and isolate yourself. Speak your mind.’
Start listening to and trusting your intuition. It is a gift from the Creator/Universe. It is a great time to receive messages from spirit. Take time to meditate.
Downfall: Don’t criticise yourself or others. Always remember to ask questions instead of making assumptions.‘
Or not, it makes sense…. more opportunities seem to appearing, and here I am speaking my mind… this could be coincidence..
I’ve taken up yoga….
I find my work meditative and
I’m working on self-critical thoughts!!
I do think now is the time to introduce a different colour/tone into my next batch of work… Hmm food for thought….
What’s your current colour crush?
Is it dictated by fashion?
Your surroundings or your mood? Or anything else? I’d love to know
