All creatives need to share and blogging is sharing, whether images or ideas. Right now, my newest activity is jewellery design - very image oriented. This fuels the urge to share both process and results, so a blog was added to Grey Pearl's website. This is a place for inspiring design from various fields; jewellery fashion, jewellery art, my own designs and other designers. Mostly images, a fact that causes reflections:
"I see, therefore I am"
The sampling of all things seen and liked - and posting it on social media seems to be our new way of confirming our existence. Maybe sharing images of what I make or see will confirm that I exist too?
I could need that sometimes...
Happy to notice, all of a sudden I find my good old mood boards to be in fashion. Once, I made detailed notes of all sorts of impressions. In those student years my world was entirely about images. Not so, for most people back then. Something that has shifted completely. Today everyone lives in a world of images, for better and worse.
However, images will be the focus on the blog. That, and a smile!
With jewellery design I find myself reconnecting with the restless energy of the fashion world, the constant change and craving for what's new; which keeps you alert. I discover I'm still fascinated by the energy of the fashion world, all though no longer totally ruled by it. Maturity adds a healthy distance.
