here are a few shots. the sun’s glare was really bright…

sometime it happens in a flash, sometime it takes longer… but each piece always finds its human match. always.

this one below is the last of a one-of-a-kind brooch series from a few years back.

the first three were bought by jewelers’werk galerie at an american craft council show in baltimore, some while ago.

round stained brooch

she walked confidently into my booth, looking straight at it.

round stained brooch was hanging on the wall, pinned to a little black neoprene panel, swinging from a chain in the sunny november day.

she picked it up, running her fingers around the edge of it, then she put it on.

adjusted it to the soft woolen collar folds of her sweater and looked in the mirror.

everything was in place just then: the bluish greens of the brooch perfectly matched the color of her sweater, the darker tones her pants, the silver blended smoothly with her short hair and her hat was calling to the subtle greys of the metal.

there, they had found each other.

Spirit 3 necklace and copper Ball earrings on Andele – BFW 2011

introducing… ‘retrospect/‘.

reflections on the year just passed, quick recap of one event at the peak moment of that time.

(as soon as i figure out what really happened in 2012, btw….)

for now:  the  boston fashion week/emerging trends 2011 in boston/ma was one of the peak events for my work for that year.

a couple of quick shots of what i got myself into in 2011… ;-|

never wanted to do much with these, was not too happy about the whole experience but, in retrospect…. it was, of course, a great learning opportunity which, i am happy to say, i didn’t quite miss…
