This look means, "that is dismal, try again"

I've just been to the most extraordinary jewellery exhibition at Gaffa - my jaw literally dropped when I saw one piece (this has only happened to me on one other occasion when I saw my first Barbara Rihl bag but I digress) - it was made from hand crocheted silver wire (which I never thought I would like until now - I must get back to Brisbane soon so that I can get my Mum to show me how to crochet - again I digress) by Anne Pfeffer Gjengedal who is a jeweller from Norway. The piece consisted of a long strand like a vine, which ended with a gorgeous flower - it was presented in the gallery as a piece of installation art hanging from the ceiling and looked stunning! I've checked out Anne's website and found a photo of it to drool over - the photo can be viewed here - but it was much more sparkly in real-life!

A few weeks ago I went to a festival at the Pine Street Creative Arts Centre at Chippendale. There were art exhibitions, music stages and markets (Gaffa Gallery had a stall there and took along some of my jewellery - see pics). There were some fabulous things on display including stencil art - which I have a serious love of! I bought one piece for the astounding price of $3 - it was created on a piece of cardboard and had written on the back "This piece of crap was made: The Lorax" - it most certainly isn't crap and now has pride of place on my studio wall. Isn't she lovely?
