I have a new commission. And before I even dare to cut into any precious metal I have to plan and plan and sketch and think and make models and think some more and email images and pictures and musings to the client and draw and think some more.
These things don't just pop out ready formed you know!
|Emerald Pools, design development, sketches and models, Jan-Feb 2013, Cari-Jane Hakes|
These test 'pools' were made with copper and brass (although the little spheres are actually silver). Sometimes I just need to see the potential beauty of the piece rendered in solid metal. I need to go through the motions of cutting, forming, soldering and polishing to really see the design.

And finally, busy busy things are going on with 'the shoe'. Here is a little film that was shot whilst images for the latest Look Book were being taken. A cold cold day in lovely London town - you wouldn't know it from the way the models managed to carry themselves. True professionals. A big thank you to everyone who worked so hard on the day.
