more of you know who…

Melissa is interviewed by Steph. A lovely time was had by all 😀

I have some new work in e.g.etal. It is much of the the work from the Return show – like the Random Strung Planes above, just without the hand-cut pieces (they are awaiting another engagement). To coincide with the new works appearing in-store, I have been interviewed by the lovely Stephanie, and photographed too. I now appear on their blog.

It was my first time being interviewed, (I’ve spent hours on the other side of the digital recorder, and the transcribing bit really hurts) but I think it went ok. I do look like a dork in the sandblaster photo, but hey, if that’s the worst of it…

discussion – part b

Part B – a magnet for jewellery obsessives. Not just any magnet; a nickel plated, 2kg rated rare-earth magnet. Melissa knows other jewellers will understand.

So, Part A: make jewellery. Part B: discuss.

You’re a jeweller, or an interested bystander, and you want to see some interesting jewellery. Your significant other/drinking buddies/family/friends/acquaintances will obediently accompany you to shows and galleries, but they’re not as ‘into’ the work as you are. You lack discussion time, a sounding board, a sympathetic ear to your obsession(s).

Solution! Come on down to Studio Ingot, Shop 2, 234, Brunswick St, Fitzroy, on Saturday the 8th of May, around 2pm. Meet other jewellers. Chat about stuff that matters. To jewellers. See Michelle Kelly‘s new work. Have a cup of tea. Go home refreshed and rewarded.

Tell your buddies!

EMBARGO

Melissa gets served fresh embargo for the first time in her life. Surprisingly, it doesn’t taste that bad…

I was reading the Christmas edition of The Big Issue over lunch yesterday, and in doing so polished off an article about embargoes (and a lamb cutlet with salad). Specifically, the article went on to explain how now-a-days, in an age where anyone and everyone can tweet to their own beat, the old-fashioned embargo is in most instances null and void. [She said “most instances”, didn’t she? oh boy, here it comes…]

Last night on arriving home I downloaded some apparently media-sensitive news. Just before my partner – TurboNerd – managed in his excitement to broadcast the whole shebang to the Twitterverse, I read the fine print, and found out that I have been gagged. So I have news, but it’s a secret. I’m not teeeell-ing,  nyah na na na nyaaaah nyah ;P

Who starts a blog with news they can’t tell? Me! I do! And you wanna know why?

Well, it sets a nice easy standard, doesn’t it?

Not to mention that it is imbued with the mystery and intrigue of an old TV series (the only one coming to mind is Batman, and you know he’ll get out of it with some tricky gismo that Alfred installed in his suit that day or by a single `kapow` – or similar – to each of the baddies). Back in the days where you could in no way find out the resolution of such cliff-hanger episodes “until you tune in next time!”

Til Monday, y’all!
