New Work for a New Year


Changes have been occurring...


The muse has taken me to a different place.


and I follow breathlessly...


sometimes barely able  to keep up.


I’m working as I sleep...I wake up with ideas
and can’t wait to get started.  


and for me a remarkable thing is happening...
my work is taking on a completely different form...
it’s coming from my heart, my head, my stories...
Now instead of spending hours looking at findings from China
I’m taking a higher road...I’m digging around in my boxes and
looking at my years of collecting and turning it into wearable objects...
little sculptures...  The necklace I bought when I was 17...the buttons
my auntie Edith gave me...I’m bursting with joy ...the stuff has meaning to me.
I am an artist.

I LOVE your new work Cynthia. It's beautiful. It's good to change and have new ideas isn't it ? It must be lovely to see your ideas become reality.
Sorry if I've missed a few posts. We seem to have been so busy helping our children move and give them a hand with decorating.....and with babysitting !!!! XXXX

You are reaching a whole new level. The joy and inspiration are for sure coming out in your work. LOVE it all!!
I'm in a creative slump as of late, life is so busy at the moment. It's about riding the waves I suppose.

Hi again Cynthia! I just found your blog, whohoo--I'll have to go back and catch up!

Seriously loving your jewelry still (I think Sinful Daughter would have to be queen if I picked). All your little windings and bends in metal have such a distinct touch. Looking forward to gawking at more.
