This morning sitting watching the sun rise over the Corbieres and hearing the tractors rumbling past on their way to harvest grapes, I suddenly realised I hadn’t looked at my blog for a while…. looking at the stats I don’t think anyone else has either but that’s another story!
I tried cutting corners earlier this year. I tried linking Instagram, Facebook Twitter together so that all I had to do was post in one area and let a sharing app do the rest…. it didn’t really work!
So, where do I go from here? Well I am going to try and resurrect Bijoux & Bijoux, assuming I can find my audience again….. if you are out there and reading this it would be great to know….
Over the summer, Andy & I decided to focus on selling our designs in Sérignan. We closed the studio for 2 months and set up shop on 3 campsites.
It worked, it was fun, physical at times but great to meet new clients and dear friends along the way. This gave me time for reflection.
I have been at an artistic crossroads for a while. Despite the fact that my polymer art is successful and sells well I no longer take pleasure in working in this medium. Throwing myself into working with recycled ties and launching the Crav’arte range has been a real tonic for me and I have plans to take this line further. However, I still felt there was something missing. Then I realised I needed to do a bit of a U turn and go back to something I worked on 12 years ago.
So here I am, in September launching a new jewellery range dedicated to gemstones but more specifically well being. My focus and take on this range will be completely different to 12 years ago. It will not consist of necklaces on display, bracelets to try on and earrings to select. I have decided to make this range personal, intimate and just like each one of us individual. Based on a consultation, together, a range of stones will be selected to accompany the person on their current life path. The consultation can either be face to face or even via the Internet. Some clients have chosen to have their cards read in order to ascertain a focus. I’m going to save that for another post!
I hope that my next post will follow quite quickly and won’t be as wordy as this one! In the meantime here is one of the first bespoke bracelets made to help a client on her current path. It features amethyst, quartz, citrine and carnelian. The beads were selected based on a tarot / oracle reading. Want to know more? Let me know!
