An old-fashioned window display I’d love to have. It appeals to the imagination.

January, O you hard month.

January was also a month of books and more books. Some I took photos of, some my mind couldn’t forget.

One of my favourite thing to so is to walk around old shopping malls after hours. I cannot tell if it is nostalgia that urges me or the anxieties of urban excess.

In my trance-like state I figure art in trail-end businesses and apocalypse suddenness.

What imbeciles!

Art heals.

And it goes on.

Diamonds, like relationships… intensity is not all that matters.

‘Taxonomy’ in our case, is a very different thing.

A ‘reasonable’ combination for the modern eye.

The Art Nouveau without enamel is so ‘snobbish’, so meant for a certain ‘type’.

There is a patent date ‘June 28.80’ and possibly an earlier date of creation ‘Oct 25.76’. 1880 and 1876, for clarity purposes… Patents take forever, it appears, even back then.

Do many choices/chores make you forget the journey?

What a piece of white paper couldn’t do.

We are going to make gemstone rings as how they look in the 18th century, closed back and with no modern idea of color ‘charting’. This is challenging for our modern eyes and mind, so used to thinking of colors as either cold or warm, stones as ‘gemstones’, and light above surprise. By the latter, I mean the story ends as long as as a stone is ‘sparkly’.

Good for magpies.

But even beauty can get boring. Which explains why we look towards breaking what current jewellers esteem, to go in the direction of beauty forgotten. Beauty that considers imperfection alongside perfection.

Hurry, hurry, onwards to the destination.

NOT!

Goodbye, forever, if I knew what forever entails.
