Oaxaca City - an artists dream. The city is clean, cobblestone streets, the buildings are coatedwith street art. It is common for travelling artists to come to visit and end up staying for days, weeks even months longer than expected.
One artist in particular that I met was an illustrator and drew these incredible intricate images. One night we got talking about art, life and the generation of acceleration. He was very proud of his work but often mentioned his desire to take it to the next level, to make next year a revolutionizing year for his work. This comment really inspired me, I thought about my jewellery and the pieces that I’ve made on the trip so far but more importantly the types of pieces I want to be making. I am going to devout the next couple months to really pushing myself, trying new ideas and always expanding my creativity.
Beading is a whole new art, a whole new way of making jewellery for me that I haven’t explored since I was a child making friendship bracelets. It has taken me a little while to really figure out what types of jewellery I want to make on this trip but I think I am finally getting into a groove. I will be posting my new creations on Instagram @coastal_chains and Facebook, if you see a piece you wish to purchase go to the Shop section to make your purchase.
