Welcome to the art of curiosity; my personal amble through the worlds of art, crafts, books & all manner of other curiosities. You'll find examples of my jewellery & art work plus an account of how I'm attempting to confound depression & my bipolarity by pursuing my creativity. There's a lot of whimsy too; my mind set is distinctly frivolous at times!

So, Dear Reader, won't you join me on my journey?

Keeping Mobile!

I love this mobile. It's a picture that I've borrowed from one of my Swatch Books - 'the art of curiosity...' has numerous facets & 'The Swatch Books' are part of the plan ;-)

If life seems quiet in Jewellery Land, it's because I'm learning new skills. One should never rest on one's laurels - taken literally, what an uncomfortable position to be in! One must evolve - surely that's one of life's lessons?

Please tell me your funny story!!

The mobile does indeed look like a Calder, but though I've discarded the swatch's text, I have a vague feeling that it may have come from Skandium: http://www.skandium.com/ I may well be wrong. If it was made by someone else, there is certainly a very strong influence at play.

Can anyone help - is it a Calder?

BTW, in the toy section of Skandium, there is a Roadster Saab that I COVET! I wish I had a grandchild & a rich husband ;-)
