Well folks, it’s that time again! Each month we ask the question, “What Are You Working on Now?” and we eagerly await your response! We love peeking inside your studios and hearing about how your work is evolving. Each month we also feature the work of a random winner—who, in addition to getting a moment in the spotlight, wins a $10 Rio credit!
This month’s winner is Sara Porle, who lives in the countryside of southeast Sweden. Take a look at what Sara’s working on and then scroll down to the bottom of the post to learn how you can enter July’s contest! Thanks for sharing, Sara!
Hi I’m Sara Porle and I mainly work with glass and metal clay. You can visit my web page Sara Porle Design.
Right now I’m working on more pieces for my “Lagom” series in glass. Lagom is a Swedish word that means “not too much, not too little – just right.” These pieces use dichroic glass fused with glass frit of different sizes and colors to make an internal texture. I want them to let the wearer’s inner light shine!
In the same batch I also made two dichroic pieces [pictured below, bottom row] that will be cold worked and then set in silver, copper, or bronze. I haven’t decided their finished form or if they’ll become rings or pendants yet, so that’s still to come
Sara’s website includes more lovely examples of her glasswork and metalsmithing. Take a look:
Now it’s your turn to show us what you’re working on. What inspires you these days? What materials are you dying to work with? Add a comment to this post with photos of something that’s on your bench right now. This next part is REALLY important, so take notes!
WE NEED THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IN ORDER FOR YOUR ENTRY TO BE CONSIDERED:
- Your full name (and a link to your website/Etsy store, if you like).
- A photo of your chosen project. Include a few photos if you like!
- A description of the project you’re featuring. If you can include a little about your approach or technique, even better! Your fellow jewelers LOVE to read this stuff and so do we.
- After you add your comment, be sure to check back and make sure your photo has uploaded as it should. We don’t want to miss your pic!
Enter and you might be spending an extra 10 bucks at Rio Grande this time next month. Our next winner will be in the spotlight in July—Amy, over at Rio’s facebook page will keep you posted on the deadline, so stay tuned!
