Taking a moment to stop and look

May 24, 2018

Hereford, Herefordshire Jewellery Designer and Maker

Another busy week here in my Herefordshire studio. Orders and commissions are being finished while new pieces are being created ready for my next show, Contemporary Craft Festival, Bovey Tracey, Devon, in just a few weeks.

There is so much to inspire me at the moment while out and about. When I walk the dog I always enjoy photographing things that catch my eye. The action of looking and recording really helps focus my mind. However, I do alway make sure at least half of the walk is just me and the dog, not recording; just taking in the scent of the fields and woodland, the feel of the land and the colours that are all around.

I wondered this week while out walking the dog, which I preferred most; the fresh bright potential filled morning walk or the laid back reflective walk in the evening sunset. There was so answer, I love both.
