New Work

I know I have been lame with my posts lately. I have been SO busy with school. Everyone asks me, "How is grad school?", "Is it different than undergrad?". The answer is yes, it is very different from undergrad. Instead of having millions of little things to do, I have these big, looming, ominous things lurking in the future. There is TONS of pressure and a lot to do...on my own. It is good, and I am already growing a lot, I am just adjusting still. I have been working very hard, and I should have a really cool piece done by the end of the week. It will be my first real piece as a grad student. I will post pics as soon as it is done! Let's just say that it will be worth the wait, I am really excited about it!! Above is an image of the piece sketched out (very roughly). It is a necklace with links in a combination of enamel and embroidery. Below is an image of what one of the embroidered links in the neckalce will look like. I am also making these into single pendant necklaces, and they will be available in my Etsy shop soon.

So cool to see your sketch! I love looking at other artist's sketchbooks. I always feel so embarrassed about my own, and hesitant to share. They just seem so juvenile to me, filled with half-realized ideas and bad drawings as I work through an idea (we are our own worst critics I suppose!)

But then occasionally I get really excited b/c a page turns out lovely… I think you may have inspired me to share a few of those soon on my blog!

Anyway, thanks for sharing! very beautiful to see.

Wow - that is very original. I like it - not that there is a piece of yours that I don't like! your necklace looks like it will be very cool :)

Thanks! I agree, I rarely show my sketches to anyone! I have to admit I am not much of a sketcher at all. I hardly ever draw things out, I usually just have it all in my head and start making! I am SO not two dimensionally talented. I decided that I need to start getting comfortable talking about my work and sharing my ideas, as this is a major part of graduate school, and figured my blog was as good a place as any to start! Thanks! I would love to see your sketches!
