GLENELG BEACH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA
As you can probably guess my work is often inspired by a sense of place – the beach! Do you have a place that inspires your work or just makes you feel inspired?
Living by the beach, I’m continually surprised at how the same location can look so different each time you go there. I find this especially if you are photographing it as it highlights the different effects of light and weather etc. on an environment. I like to find particular elements within an environment and interpret that into a jewellery piece. It may be the pattern and texture of ripples in the sand or how an aerial view of a beach has a distinct shoreline that may be interesting to trace into a piece of silver.
When down at the beach in summer I was inspired to photograph some shadows cast on the pure white sand of Glenelg Beach and here is an example in the photo above. Hope you are also enjoying the environment you are in.
