I made this necklace, painting and drawing to go together. The painting and drawing informing the colours and structures in the necklace. Long way from finished but getting there.
Making in the garden while my daughter makes mud pies. Maybe spring is really here.
My love affair with sea urchins continues, I love the colours, textures and form. They seem too delicate and colourful to originate in the North Sea.
The more I look at this necklace the more I feel like it’s not over. I need to go back and get into it again. I think it needs a dark thread to pull it all together and the cluster of gun metal urchins has to go to make way for more pink and red…
Such an elegant name Gutweed. Gutweed is bright bright green seaweed with a really delicate, transparent lettuce like leaf.
