Secret Garden Preview


Snuck this onto the facebook fan page and thought I'd post it here as well. I'm working on a littler series of necklaces with the combination of flowers, little birds and key holes and calling it (to myself anyway) Secret Garden. I've always loved that story.
And yes, in case anyone at all cared, its always me in these photos. Me, holding the camera out and using a mirror to reflect the view screen back so I can line up the shot. Very hi tech and professional, yessir.

Just a little Preview

Its been quiet in here, hasn't it? What happened, you may be asking yourself, to the process posts and the rambling artist inspiration posts that at least had pretty reference images? Well here we are again, back to sketches and beginnings! I don't often do an actual color mock up sketch, but in this case I was unsure of the design and materials and wanted a better idea of how it would look as a finished piece.
These are designs I'm working on for the Nova Albion Steampunk Exhibition coming in March. I've wanted for a while now to add something a little more genre specific to my jewelry designs, and these designs reflect that. I also wanted something suitable for both ladies and gentleman's accessories, so watch out for some watch chain-fob sets and some tie pins at the Exhibition!
