Fishink Cards and Boo ring Jewellery
Well hello there and welcome to another day in the life of Fishink. The collaboration between Jeweller Heather Fox and myself, to create a Boo inspired ring (that’s my dog), has come to a wonderful conclusion. It started with my drawings of her to use as inspiration for Heather’s work.
When I first saw just how tiny Heather was working, in order to cut out the silver shapes needed for the ring, I was amazed and all done by hand.. no lasers here ! I soon discovered that some of the shapes I had drawn, didn’t work so well when the dog was soo tiny. Her curled up paws, for instance, look more like roots of a tree !
I created another standing dog pose instead, but even then getting the ears right was another problem.
We got there. Eventually the pieces and the ring itself, started to take shape.
And here it is… Heather has made a wonderful job of interpreting my illustrations, and I’m delighted with the final piece. You can contact Heather here, firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to commission her to make something for you.
I’ve also been keeping busy designing some new cards for the recent, Valentines Day and the up and coming Mother’s day.
I enjoyed doing some new creative work again, using nature as inspiration.
Also I’ve added some new characters to my small frames range, these were the original pencil drawings.
And some new animals.
Already the Manchester Bee and pig are proving themselves to be popular newcomers.
If you are interested in any of the cards (£3 plus p&p) or frames (£15 plus p&p) just let me know. More here in my online shop. All comments welcome.
