Every day I try and do SOMETHING to move forward with my work. If, at the end of the day, I reflect and find that I have not done any work toward The Aficionado’s ... something-or-other, then I have not done anything to elevate myself and Aficionado Studios... and that is un-sophisticated.  As Aficionados, we must maintain a decent level of sophistication, you know...  So, while often frantic, working on non-aficionado projects in my studio, I make many idea-notes on the next step for projects that have been put on hold in lieu of other more pressing matters.  Eventually, I find time to follow through with my post-it note collection and have something of my own to be proud of.

 

 

This month I released the first phase of jewelry to grace "The Aficionado’s Jewelry Collection", the Driven series, which is comprised of jewelry using sterling silver cast screw heads.  

 

Above: assorted studs; below: stackable rings

The collection can be viewed online here.

 

The next series, working title: Access, will be released in November, and should give you access to some secrets we’ve been keeping...   


Hope this piques your curiosity.

The Perils of "Secret" Projects!

This last couple of months has been absolutely unbearable for someone who enjoys sharing the progress of works online. First came the Caledonian Sleeper cufflink commission, then came my work with "The Contemporary Jewellery Exchange" for Jan Donaldson, which I can't show until the 1st of May! The good thing is that I can now reveal the…See More
