Welcome to my blog, where I document my process in making jewelry, muse on the influence of art and the joy of making beautiful objects.

no sleep till...Arlington?

That's how it felt last weekend. It's been a bit crazy/busy for me lately. I flew to San Diego last Friday to work for HRC at the San Deigo Pride Festival booth.
Every year I always forget how much hard work it is, staffing a booth. Anyways, it was still great to be back on the West Coast, I love the vibe and just the nearness of the ocean. I was kinda sad I didn't get to visit the beach but that's okay.
It was somewhat ironic though that our booth was next to 2 jewelery booths. One, I was particularly enamored with, Coco Loco jewelry. I bought 2 pairs of earrings...I shouldn't have but I knew that if I didn't I'd kick myself. I rarely ever buy other jewelry as I like to wear my own but when I find something I really like, I get it.
the wood earrings are very cool, that is one thing I definitely want to learn at ECU, woodcarving.
I bought a pair of the Coconut carved earrings that look like 'spacers' - earrings that usually heavy metal peeps wear.
I've already worn them 3 days in a row...sorta addicted. I don't usually wear earrings because I've been making some larger neckpieces but these earrings have me thinking on broader terms....which leads me to the doodles I did at a meeting today.
I was listening at the meeting! I've read numerous reports that say state that when one doodles they are more apt to remember what it was they were listening to.
Here are some of the fun 'doodles' (aka sketches) I did.

I really like where I was going with the sketches and definitely plan on working out a necklace with the trapazoidish designs. I want to make some triangle earrings. I was telling a friend, that I'm really tired of round designs. Not that round is bad...it just gets boring when you see the same design, over and over again. Yet, I find myself doodling lots of triangles...that's where I get stuck, combining different elements. Pin It
