Shells come home.

I still don't have access to a working metal studio but I have been reconnecting with work created in what seems a life time ago!
These shell necklaces were created when I was living in New York - far away from the east coast of Australia where their inspiration came from. They were part of a satellite exhibition during a Metalsmith conference in Denver Colorado - a land-locked state.  So you can imagine they were quite happy to be reunited with the beach - back to their origins!

Bead Explosion

So my bead stash exploded a few days ago!

Out of the confusion and chaos a few beauties came into existence

Also made a some sparkleys for the beach-babes and then headed off down to the weekly Baazar market at the Community Centre.

I haven't really had a lot of market experience in the past but Byron has such a strong market culture it wasn't so scary. Turned out to be a great way to spend the day, meet people and chatter away. Oh, and a little grocery money never goes astray!

Benches have moved to the Beach!

One day you're living in the city and the next you're living at the beach - it's a crazy old world, that's for sure!

Byron Bay is my new home and I'm starting to wonder at the B's in my life. Might have to expand on this project

Brooklyn to Brisbane
