In the summer months, I go to local markets and sell the mini sculptures and canvas art I make in the form of jewelry. My favourite medium to work with is copper. Although I also use brass, steel and silver. The canvas earrings are also miniature abstract expression pieces. Not surprising, for those choosing painted canvas earrings, the decision is not less difficult than it is for deciding on a painting to buy.
All my earrings are for pierced ears. if you are a person who likes original earrings at affordable prices, as I do then my choice of earrings are fun to look at. Semi- precious stones and beads are more popular with earrings and so I offer a good choice using the metals mentioned.
I learn a lot from the process of making earrings. First of all, design and form is always at play the same as in any artwork. In the case of making earrings, the process involves repeating the design twice and getting it right. A number of people interested in making jewelry often ask about how to get started and where to get supplies. Just as an artist describes the process of art making, the result does not always mean selling the work, but it just might be an incentive for someone else’s creativity.
Meeting the public as they travel to their various vacation destinations allows me the opportunity to discuss the artwork I do and to explain my philosophy of creativity. Which is to use all of my extra materials in the art making process for something both functional and artistic. Everything points back to my primary interest in making art. Of course, I enjoy making the jewelry.
