A woman can always find space for more jewellery!
I majored in painting, so sculpture is a hobby that provides a wonderful excuse to play with power tools. It is a very masculine discipline and I' m still learning and experimenting.
This project was the first time that I worked with wax, before I had only ever worked in clay. I love the detail I can get in wax models. I took some wax in a lunch box with me where ever I went, and if the present company allowed it, I'd sit and fiddle and create something with it.
The moulds were made with rubber and fiber glass. I find this is the messy, smelly part., but fortunately all this is forgotten once the first piece is revealed! Now the boys and I could start grinding and polishing and playing with cool man-toys!
The casting gave me an opportunity to experiment with various resin techniques. I added real bronze, aluminium, copper and marble dust, and saw different effects. The options are endless, and like I said in the beginning, when it comes to jewelry, less is a bore and more is more!
