Spring Circus (sold) by Cathy Cullis
Step right this way... Each month a group of jewelry artists use their blogs to get together online and answer the same question - each in their own way. This month the topic is:
What is your favorite technique?
Well, if we're talking about metal clay - I love construction and joinery - making boxes, making my hollow rings. I love fussing. It's actually very hard for me to do "simple". I always want to embellish, sand to perfection. I look at The Bower and want to add granulation balls. I want to put a raised frame around it. And it's funny, because when I look at other peoples art or home furnishings... I like the simple, uncluttered look. But my own home is bordering on Victorian excess. And let's face it - my jewelry could stand a wee bit of the paring down.
On to metal smithing - I do love me some rivets. And conquering solder joins. But does that fall into the fussing portion of my brain again?
So let's just say that I love putting it together; piece by piece; making the connections; adding the details... (a great song that should be the anthem of all jewelry makers). I'm an embellisher at heart. Deal with it! ;-)
