Once a week I go to work in an office. It's totally different from the rest of the week which is uni based, practical and art driven. I was talking to my boss, who is a contemporary jeweler, about the participation idea...and she got it right away and then gave me two examples in her field.
Rian de Jong
and Areta Wilkinson including an interesting essay at art jewelery forum from craft unbound.
All were really interesting and added to my sudden relief that there is a whole community out there creatively and successfully pulling off an idea that I'm only beginning to explore. Yay!
