Hasn't the weather been amazing? Just seeing blue skies and everything bursting into bud and flower is so inspiring. I have enjoyed taking a little longer to walk the dog, morning and evening, enjoying the views and photographing those walks over the past weeks. I look back over the images regularly and they feed into the stones I choose, the metals I work with and the designs I make.
Leaves, twigs and branches are perhaps one of the things I photograph most.
Getting low down and and photographing the field from a low angle is one of my favourite shots, the dandelion seed heads appear as giants to the trees in the distance. It helps with playing with the proportion and perspective in my own work.
The sunsets have just been so amazing over the last few weeks too, the rich golden warm tones are so lovely.
I have been photographing lots of pieces of work over the last few week, trying to give you a better perspective of each piece by including images of them being worn. As I am the only one here, I am the model and photographer! Perhaps it is a bonus to see them worn on hands that are far from beautiful as my hands make each piece and have never once had a manicure!
