Beautiful Handmade Statement Necklaces and other Fabulousness from Neena Shilvock - Inspirations and Designs From the Week Gone by
My first attempt at a blog - have had fun making this website - did all the elements myself, with the help of Weebly support - have used it as distraction therapy and I dedicate it to my dear brother, who unfortunately will never get to see it. I know, however that he would have been proud of my efforts.
This picture is by a Russian artist called Kandinsky - it is called Symphony No 7 - he had a condition called synesthesia where his brain converted colour into sound - he heard his colours! - wonder what he heard when he painted this?? This is a painting I love - exuberant, unconventional colourful with just enough definition to make it look like a jazz orchestra - to me - what does it look like to you?? I have a print on my living room wall, and my husband and I often sit and stare at it and always find something else to marvel about - one more trumpet, or bass player or drummer - and I love the colours too - very me.
I found some Intarsia agate pendant beads today which were reminiscent of this - like marquetry work in gemstone, and I had to have some - dont know what I will do with them when they arrive - they will probably need a simple setting as they are so complicated already. But I would never just hang them with a bail - O no sirree - will dream up some crazy complicated stuff - may take a while, but one day they will be on this website in some wierd and wonderful avatar.
I'm Neena Shilvock, and I'm crazily addicted to jewellery. I've been designing and making quirky and interesting statement necklaces for the last five years and my passion hasn't cooled off one little bit - in fact it has got worse, such that I'm even dreaming jewellery.
