Where Do I Start?
Well I may as well jump right in and give you some tastes of India, Gem Show and my newest creations in one fell swoop.
I've been busy resizing hundreds of photos for Facebook and hope to be sharing some here.
Not all 800 I promise.
I just got this glass pendant kit from CraftFantastic at the gem show in Tucson upon our return. I've about used up all that I bought already!
I made fast work with the little bits of graphics I picked up on the streets of India and from some of the children's books I found. I mixed in a few images from my Moroccan morality books too.
Just glue the images to the little glass squares, I can put anraku pendant bails on these if I wish.
These images are from snuff packages, a Bollywood disc cover, a children's book and a 100 year old Tamil script religious book.
I could have gone really crazy in the sari trim shops of Mumbai so I limited myself to a few choice samples.
Even more vivid in person
An assemblage dog I met in Mumbai. Those dogs need to be tough to survive there.
This is some kind of joke for Mumbai, there is non-stop honking.
Some graphics for you
Love the rust and the old name Bombay. Too bad this wouldn't fit in our luggage!
At an art school.
We had a most incredible if not exhausting trip in India. I'll try to share bits and slices with you as I go along. Right now what I really want to be doing is putting my inspiration to work in the studio as well as catching up on blogland. I've been on a bit of a marathon since we came home jumping smack into the gem show. I managed to pick up a few choice goodies even though I swore I didn't need many more supplies. It's too tempting though and I was happy with what I picked up.
All for now...enjoy!
