I've been working on these between working on the commissioned Post-Apocalyptic Cocktail Ring, "Autumn Resonance", which is now completely constructed and has only to be cleaned, set and polished:
It is going to be set with a 28ct golden citrine (not shown), peridot, a large pink tourmaline, champagne diamonds and hessonite garnets:
While I was working today, the email from "Suspended in Green" arrived, telling me that I had not been selected. I had kind of guessed that my work wouldn't fit into the curatorial direction anyway as I know that the previous two shows have been heavily minimal-conceptual and while my work has concepts, it could never be described as "minimal". As John and Corliss pointed out, what is minimal for me is not necessarily what other people would see it as, thus I decided that the fourth of the bracelets would be anything but, hence this scribbled page for "The Spoils of War" where engraving, enamelling, gemstones, pattern and colour come back with a vengeance!
