looks really sweet - and i read you want to do automata - me too! just got a grant here in australia to do a series of moving dioramas - we will have to share some pics sometime soon!
thanks - your work is lovely!
There is lots of stuff you can do on kit and caboodle - put images, news and events up, ask/answer stuff in the forums, join a group and yes, you can even pimp your page.
Just remember kit and caboodle is a public network, its aim is promotional, so be sure to only put up personal details that you are comfortable with. There are privacy and email options in the settings. (Gazillions of kit and caboodle emails in your inbox driving you bonkers? Check out how to fix that in FAQ on the right.)
Kit and caboodle is an ideal place to put up posts about exhibitions or any current news that you have. There is a lot of interest in the network. It would be great if you posted regularly in the blog, you can choose to have blog posts on your page and/or on the front page. Add some images and links too.
Also dont forget to join our facebook page. Say hi to Sonya.
Most of all, there are lots of opportunities to network with other jewellers, outlets, galleries and to see what is happening in the world of contemporary jewellery. It should be fun. Anytime you have a problem, or cant work something out, let me know.
I think many of us tend to over look anything we do that is not 'jewellery' and we forget that without all the little bits and bobs that we make along the way, we wouldn't end up with a beautiful piece of jewellery in the end. Recognition of all the small things that happen along the way makes the process so much more enjoyable ;o)
I really like your work as well, the simplistic but adventurous compositions have a lovely tension of sophistication and playfullness .
I'm probably doing too many things at once these days but hey ho. I make jewellery, mainly working in silver, and at the moment am dreaming about the day I can start making some automata (always gets put off 'til another day). I restore clock dials for the family clock making business, and I do a few hours a week in the local college teaching BTEC Design students which I love, it's quite inspirational and keeps the brain ticking over.
