Photography is spilling over the digital walls of our garden here in Volume Two-Land. I have work in from Scotland, England, Germany, Switzerland, Australia, France, South Africa, Israel, Norway, Canada, and all over the US. It’s so exciting to see all of these sparkling pieces tumbling over the photo table.
Our deadline for submissions for Volume II is technically August 15th, but of course we will be able to slot things in through the end of September, and we’ll have room in the interactive eBook, so keep the photos coming!
We are still shooting for a December delivery of the paper Volume II.
Here are some of the images from the recent shoots.
Above, Godzilla with a Jeannette Cook Cityscape Bangle. Jeannette sells kits for these in her web shop, and she’s contributed the pattern for Volume II. Thanks, Jeannette!
Below, a Power Puff Bangle by Jade McClung. Note the many patterning details… so bold but also subtle.
Above, a flat view of a gorgeous Horned Cuff by Karen Beningfield, from South Africa.
Below, Karen’s cuff clasped.
I adore the orange, gold and creams.
Below, a glorious Power Puff from Marg Gapper, in the UK.
Above, A Horned Bangle, a TInyHorn, and a double-layered Rick-Rack by Marg Gapper. The Tinyhorn wanted to surround the Rick-Rack, so I allowed it. Who am I to come between friends?
Below, an elegant Rick-Rack from Marina Montagut.
Below, a wrap bangle from Pnina Caspi, in Israel.
And below, two intricate pieces by Rayo Boursier, who created double-layers for the top and bottom rounds of these bangles. See how the inside is different than the outside?
Cath Thomas sent in a box of wonder, and this piece, her Moonrise Rick-Rack, really captured me.
