but do you consider light?

sun tunnels, utah - nancy holt

we know that there are elements of design - color, texture, shape - & principles - balance, unity, scale - (to name a few)... 

but do you consider the light? 



in your work itself?

in your photography?


everything you work with has qualities of translucency or opacity - explore them... the strength and solidness of metals and clay, the delicacy of gems, glass and resin...  you can find the balance... 


designing from the gut is a wonderful thing - your hands dance across different bits and bobs... but being aware of your choices and thinking about what they mean adds a dimension of intentionality to your work

and this can take it to another level completely -

Thanks for bringing focus to something I think many of us overlook. I will be thinking about light as I work on my next batch of jewelry;)

As a seed beader I do look to what the light does on each part of it. I am still attempting to capture that in photos but in real life I can make sparkles dance and it is cool!

You are a bright light in the world Miss Maire. Your creations attest to it. Thank you for opening my mind to the possibilities of bringing light to life in my creative work. Enjoy the day. Erin
