Last year just a little before Valentines day I decided a girl should have at least one heart design at her shop, I tried and I tried, came up with something that didn't turn out to be a hit....
The only one enjoying it is my 12 year old. I put it aside and decided when it will come, it will come and apparently Valentines isn't a good enough excuse for my creativity to come up with a pattern.
Yesterday or actually the day before in the middle of all these wonderful "getting ready to Christmas" wholesale orders that started coming in, it hit me..... I felt I have a direction that needs to explored.
I made one, then another one then another one..... and the forth one I'm wearing right now.
So - I feel I tackled this 3d form in my crochet technique, not sure jewelry wise if and how yet but I'm really happy with the results, especially before I take off the "needs to be cut" wires, isn't that a fun photo?

Not so long ago I found a photo I took about 20 years ago when I was preparing my first portfolio for applying to design school.
It was a red empty frame I made out of carton, sometimes a frame tells the whole story, this led me to designing this series of flowery empty circles, that focuses on the outskirt rather then the center.
The first was actually red but I didn't take a snap shot of it so you will take my word for that :)
When it was finished I struggled a lot over a name, frame sounded odd, empty sounded bad, I decided to call it a dream catcher, it reflected the dreamy and mysterious feeling it gave me it was ready, but now that I write these thing i wonder weather outskirt could be more interesting....
