Jewelry in Progress


Some of my new supplies arrived last week so I’ve been busy painting, sanding, varnishing and glossing…I’ll save the “sanding & varnishing” for another entry and show you some of the “painting & glossing” this entry.

If you’ve been following along you’ll know that in the last could of years I’ve branched out artistically into the realm of jewelry and because I am in love with the Abstract Impressionist form & color I really wanted to incorporate that into my jewelry which I did in my watercolour painted pendants.

But now I have added a new type of paint to my arsenal that let’s me create beautiful organic yet abstract feeling textures & patterns.
These are just a few of the pieces I’ve been working on.

I love how rich and vibrant I can get the colours and how beautifully the blend & mix. Also can you tell that I’m in love with this gorgeous teal color.
The pieces that seem foggy had the sealer drying on them.

So stay tuned for some lovely pieces to be added to my Shop soon!
Also keep checking back for more in progress posts on art & jewelry.

Cheers,
Amanda

Creativity is switched ON


Ever have those nights where you’re laying in bed and you have something come to mind and you KNOW that if you don’t get up that instant and write it down it’ll be gone in the morning.

That happens to me ALL the time. I don’t know how many nights I have scribbled on a piece of paper in the dark hopping by morning I’ll understand what the heck it was I wrote down.

Well last night I didn’t have my idea book by the bed SO after Blinding myself with my cell phone I typed my thoughts out on my notepad.

What were they? It had to do with my Genesis Tree of Knowledge painting and I’d tell you my ideas for the piece but as they say “Spoilers Darling”.

Needless to say I went back to working on it tonight and though I didn’t work on the really exciting bits I did block in my next layer.

Transforming the painting from this:

Into this

It may not seem like much but Trust me It’s all Clear now!

Prior to my epiphany last night I worked on a few earrings for my new jewelry line I’ll be starting.

My love for color extends beyond my artwork.

Though oddly enough I still love my jeans and a black T lol

Anyway enough chattering for tonight.
