I’ve just started a concept developement class at college which encourages development of ideas for future work that can be related to current major studio practice or entirely unrelated. For a while, I have been thinking about breathing new life into my “failed” proofs by transforming them into wearable jewellery. The print may be a failure but will still contain some beautiful moments and mark making. I am trying to capture these marks on the surface of hand rolled paper beads as an initial inquiry into my idea to turn my prints into jewellery. I made some proto type beads this week. It’s cool to be taking my printmaking into an entirely different realm and finding a use for my scrap papers. Might have to pop into the Jewellery studio at college this week ! Many jewellery related questions buzzing round my head !
