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.
