january featured artist

For january we have Pearl as our featured artist. Please read to get to know Pearl and her creations.

1st:How long have you been creating and what really got you into it?

A: I think I started creating in my early teens - knotting friendship bands, cross-stitching, crocheting and card-making. I can't remember how I got into those, but they're probably good for keeping me out of trouble! At a later stage in life, I picked up basic photography, pottery and now, jewellery-making. I love beautiful things and these forms of creation allow me to capture that moment or that thought in time.

2nd: How would you tell someone off the street what it is you do?

A: I would tell them I make simple and pretty little jewellery that can be fun too.

3rd: How do you feel when you are creating a piece?

A: Excited and anxious to know how it will turn out. Ecstatic if it's better than or as I expected.

4th: Where do you draw your inspiration from?

A: organic/earthy things, contrasts, geometric shapes, colors, patterns, textures, and cutesy stuffs too! ;p

5th: Do you ever want to try something but don't know how? If so what is it?

A: I would like to paint one day.

6th: is there any one thing you love to create?

A: I love to make necklaces, because they can dress up an outfit instantly!
