We Are Linked / by Patsy Kolesar

In January our Jewellery Artists Collaboration group met to brainstorm and plan for the year. Last year all of our projects came to us very organically, which was a perfect way to work together in our first year as an artists group.  The three of us all agreed that we loved the creative push that collaborating gave us and we wanted to continue this artistic communion in 2014.  

We also all agreed that we fell in love with this necklace, which we lovingly refer to as "The Linky Necklace":

The Linky Necklace was part of our limited edition series that we created after we created The Medea Necklaces.  Like our projects last year, this necklace just came together organically.  We each had these pieces left over and thought they could look nice all together in one linked necklace.  This one of a kind necklace is for sale right now in Garnish Jewellery Gallery in Revelstoke.  The three of us loved how it turned out so much that our project for 2014 is inspired by it.  

Our project is called "We Are Linked"  each month we are picking a theme and are individually creating 3-5 pieces that can be linked.  At the end of the year we will be having an exhibition of the resulting Linked Necklaces.  We will be sharing the pictures throughout the year of our links via instagram, facebook and here on my blog using #wearelinked and #jewelleryartcolab  

For the month of February our theme is Love & The Unexpected.  I'm excited to get into my studio this week and see where this theme takes me!
