Its been a crazy six months with my being over in London for a very exciting, challenging and rewarding internship. I was awarded two grants, one from the British Council, Australia, the other from the Ian Potter Cultural Trust, which supported my time in London while i worked with the wonderful UK fashion/costume/contemporary jeweller, Scott Wilson.
My time with Scott was incredibly rewarding and inspiring, while at the same time very challenging and eye opening. We worked on a broad range of projects, including fashion collaborations, production line ranges, catwalk pieces and bespoke commissions.
London in itself was also an intensely vibrant and energising experience, so, now that i'm back, its time to knuckle down and start processing it all and channeling it into some new and exciting work. Look out 2012!
In the pipe line for the new year will be new collections going out into my various galleries and stores, as well as working on an online shop, among a host of other projects on the go. So stay tuned.
In the mean time, Karla (my studio buddy) and i had our one day Christmas sale last week. Apologies if you missed the memo, i'm only just getting back into action.
*Do note, if you're not following my Facebook page, it might be worth while 'liking' it as i do post notices up on there regarding sales, events, projects etc...*
It was a great event, with some lovely folks stopping by to do a bit of shopping and sticking round for a chat.
Here are some pics from the night, as well as a few shots from my time with Scott Wilson.
