shifting focus


I’ve always been too scared to share more than my jewellery on my blog. This year I really want to be free of those restraints I’ve put on myself, I want to let go of the fear and feel free to share more of my life here.

“Shifting Focus” will be a series of photographs that will capture more personal aspects of my life – people, places, objects, and little moments that are meaningful to me.

*Despite my husband adding "Mr Dinosaur" chasing me to this image, this post is really quite serious.

Yesterday I stumbled upon Kirsty Mitchell’s beautiful photographs from her “wonderland” series on Flickr, which led me to her website and diary entry about her creative process in making this extraordinary series of work. I was moved to tears by the deeply personal nature of her work and so inspired by her exceptional creativity, passion, determination and dedication. The amazing amount of time and energy that went into creating such incredible handmade work is absolutely inspirational.
