"Your saw piercing is amazing!!! I realy love that damask style, I've been trying to work that sort of pattern into my next tattoo but I still havnt quite got it sorted. Do you know any tatooists in Melb that would be good at that sort of thing?…"
My jewellery is mainly laser cut leather and hand pierced silver inspired by tattoos, the Victorian era, Gothic architecture and culture and Art Nouveau. Most of my work is about achieving beauty through detail and the relationship of a piece to the body. Like tattoos I enjoy creating pieces that are if not a part of the body then an extension of it, complementing the body's lines and forms.
Hey Clare [I got the spelling right this time...]
You'll be welcome at Chrissie, although I will be flat out, but I'll find time for a cuppa with you.
A Tassie girl, eh... I'm also 'friends' with Emily Snadden, who is also from down here, though currently studying at Wagga. It's a wonder you two haven't become 'friends' yet...
We should start our own 'Group' of Tasmaniacs, both ex-pats and in-pats...
Once again, lovely work...
Lovely work...! While looking at it I was immediately reminded of Berlin Iron Jewellery from the early Nineteenth Century, only further developed and made contemporary and subject to your own idiom... No doubt you are familiar with that work...
And the disinterested 'Betty Boop' poses of you modeling your work are enchanting, although I shouldn't tell you that, lest self-consciousness replace the disinterest...
I haven't but my mother was a costume designer for major theater companies. Perhaps you need a good PR company to make enough noise about your 'unique' work and skills and style. Contact all the theatres and watch out for "calls for" at places like ... http://www.artsconnect.com.au/callforartists/0409_callforsetdesigners.htm
Contact NIDA. All of them. And who knows if you could be recognised by entering some costume award like ... http://www.trust.com.au/philanthropy/awards/thelma_afford/
