Finished my first piece! I'm really proud of it. It's not perfect but I learnt so much making it. It was super satisfying to make something and actually finish it and wear it. I was inspired by a Dutch jeweller Corina Rietveld who mixes her silver work with wood, thread and other natural materials.
My tutor Susie is pushing me to experiment more with my work. It's still new to me- the idea the jewellery can be something more than a perfectly made object. I kept looking for perfection but I think it might be the search for that perfection that prevents me from just having fun with the process.
