Off to Birmingham this weekend to meet with fellow jewellers and Crafthaus members, Miriam Rowe and Yi Liu. I'm going down for a meeting of the board of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery and it's always good to make these things a bit social too.

 

Been doing a lot of work on "A Forest" too. I managed to complete the top of the main box structure:

 

A Forest (WIP) - 36

 

A Forest (WIP) - 37

 

The central section is going to hold an obsidian skull with oak leaves around the head in a kind of "green man" motif. (I wanted to make this an especially English piece as The Cure have always seemed to me to be a band which could really only have come from England, hence the oak leaves, acorns and green man.)

 

I also managed to get started on making the liner for the box which will create the sense of depth and of peering through the trees:

 

A Forest (WIP) - 39

 

The green is just the colour of the cardboard I was using to make the macquette. The actual inner structure will be on a copper frame:

 

A Forest (WIP) - 40

 

There won't be any progress on this now until I get back from Birmingham.
