Today was Art’s for all Day in the KSP primary school and it was a super fun-filled day with lots of music, colours, clay and amazing, interesting new and old technic’s ideas and understanding of Art and Craft’s.

I did a Jewellery workshop connected to the Sustainable Future exhibition, the children brought in old broken things, shells, super heros, stones, that they then turned into nice wearable pieces of Jewellery, I had great patient helpers, thank you, we recycled, upcycled and reused. Here is a selection of the amazing creativity of first and third class.

Stay Green

Now that Patricks Day is over, I like to hold on to the ”GREEN”, the green that opens your heart, the green that we forget about sometimes living on this beautiful Island.

You can bring green into your life every day in form of gemstones and experience the healing effect they have on you very suttle working away without you noticing.

Emerald comes to mind first, being the most famous and also very precious variety of green, but there is also Tourmaline one of my own favorites, because of its amazing colour spectrum, Diopsid, Dioptas, green Garnet like Tsavorit, Demantoid and Uwarowit and the more apple green of Peridot, Hiddente, Beryl(Heliodor), Fluorite, Prasiolith a green Quarz and the more opaque versions like and Aventurine, Prasem, Chrysopas, Jade, Malachite, Moosagate, very rare are green Diamonds and green Saphierres(low iron content) they can be very high in price. You can find something green in every price range, and wear it in a piece of jewellery or carry a nice shaped gemstone in your pocket.

Be brave go green.having fun at work

Oscars

This year the Oscars are very close to my heart, Aisling the Fairy from the film “Secret of Kells” flew in form of a necklace to Los Angeles, I made this piece specially for Tomm Moore’s wife Liselott to bring over the ocean.

Let the Fairies play with the Angels, hopefully it will bring them good luck this Sunday too.
