telling tales: the garden series

This week's 'telling tales' for my featured artist slot in the Blackberry Gift Shop will run to a garden theme.

the garden of my childhood

This is my inspiration - it's 8000km away from where I am now and I miss it. Making the garden-inspired jewelry, just like the sea glass pieces, reminds me of home and eases the homesickness.
It's a fabulous garden, a true testament to my parents' love and devotion which transformed an overgrown wilderness into a fantastic wilderness full of lush plants, incredible trees and secret paths.

It's no wonder then that a lot of my work has a garden-inspiration behind it. It was a big part of my life and, I suppose, it still is!
