So it’s been 3 months working from home. At first I worked like nothing much had happened, except at home, making collages as I’m unable to make jewellery at home, less days, 5 instead of 6, and shorter days though my days now start at silly o’clock as the weeks have gone on, they are also less interrupted, slower making, more considered, and it was lovely, simple. I like the no commute mornings, eating lunch from an actual bowl, birds singing and my garden view, and seeing my partners face every day. Bliss.
Then I wobbled.
Then I got back on my feet and attempted to draw and learn calligraphy, both on my list of what I would do if only I had time and space. I took online calligraphy workshops, though they were an essential start I soon decided, predictably, to do it my own way. My drawing is rusty and was totally unsure of what and how. So, feeling a little lost I posted my drawings and writings so far in stories on Instagram as a good way to see things from a different angle and objectively. The feedback was great, I’m used to comments about my finished work from having a shop so it feels only right. And so I thought I’d share them here too so I don’t loose momentum and hopefully it will push me to continue. Somehow!
So I intend to continue writing and drawing and see where it takes me. Hopefully to new jewellery when we return in August. I may just share again here before then. If you are still reading, thank you and hi!
