A Design A Day - Day 15 Merry-go-round

我一直訂閱 Joana Miranda 的 blog, 很受到她的 Design a Day project 鼓勵, 也在自己的網站上照做 - 真的需要超凡的毅力! 今天發信問她色鉛筆彩繪刻面寶石的方法, 她不只詳細的回覆我, 還在 blog 上發文跟讀者們分享我們跨越半個地球相互打氣的事情, 文章裡附上我的網址請大家也給我們打氣... 人間處處有溫情啊!!! :-)
 
今天還赴了三個約會, 見到親人和朋友 - 共10人! :-))
 
今天的設計靈感是旋轉木馬的鏡子 - 映照每個歡樂時光和笑臉.

福爾摩沙之美設計比賽

這個月參加了福爾摩沙之美珠寶設計比賽,很可惜沒有入選。不過準備的過程挺開心的,學到很多,也已經打開了以後的合作機會,算是很有收穫!
特別感謝我的珠寶製作老師 Yves Lemay 為我提供建議並且救火... :-P

台灣原生的蝴蝶和蝴蝶蘭是我們的驕傲,也是我們的寶貝。

設計中以生動飛舞的蝴蝶,以及含苞、綻放的蝴蝶蘭,共同呈現生機蓬勃的景象。

國人餽贈蝴蝶蘭盆栽時,慣用蝴蝶結緞帶裝飾,以示隆重。在這裡,蝴蝶結緞帶環繞成台灣本島橫臥的輪廓,將這幅圖畫作為對福爾摩沙之美的禮讚!

蝴蝶、蝴蝶蘭和蝴蝶結的組合,也是本設計的趣味所在。

A Design A Day - Day 14: Love of the Cross

A great friend of my mom's, Aunt Bai, gave me a few of her old jewelries to renovate. This is not a commission though, she just gave them to me! She also advised that I could design a few cross pendants, since even non-believers seem to be fans of it.

So, I'm going to take the beautiful pearl with pink luster from the old pin, and incorporate it in a cross pendant design, and give it back to Aunt Bai! :-)

The other cross pendant is designed for a younger group like myself. Simple cross motif with the red coral bead from the old flower brooch, with "Love Never Fails." verse (1 Cor 13:8) in the chain. The inspiration of the chain came from "Star by Yun" Lover's B.S. necklaces . But I'm using Truth of Love instead.

1 John 3:16 - This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.

A Design A Day - Day 13: Peace

I've lost count of the number of days that I missed...
 
I'm in Taipei enjoying a short break, catching up with friends and kicking back.  Today's post is a rough pencil sketch of a peace dove.  Peace!

Isa 40:31 but they that wait for Jehovah shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint.

A Design A Day - Day 10: Malachite

上週和弟弟去逛了古北的珍珠城,本來只是開開玩笑,結果真的買下一對很薄的孔雀石蛋面。

開玩笑是因為孔雀石很便宜,最後幾乎是以開價的對折買下的。

上週上課老師給我們看了俄羅斯 State Hermitage Museum 的 Malachite Room 照片,也放上來。

今天畫的兩張都是畫在黑色紙上,畫起來有點慢,不過效果還不錯。

A Design A Day - Day 10

五一長假,我的設計也跟著放假了...

昨晚做了一個再奇怪不過的夢,夢見我是一個男人的小老婆,同在一個屋簷下的大老婆被冷落在一旁。有天大老婆和家人出其不意的把我的房間變成雜貨鋪 (!?),我的東西都被搬出來,收到不同的壁櫥裡,但壁櫥都是白色的。我一個一個櫃子打開找東西,有個櫃子裡面隔成好多小方格,每格放一把折傘......
