photoblog image The Jewellery Maker

The Jewellery Maker

For reasons best know to itself, the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) based in Georgia, USA, has a campus in Lacoste, Provence and some of the buildings in the village are set up as galleries and studios for the  alumni of SCAD. 

 

Here, Kristen Baird demonstrates her jewellery-making skills to Steve and Gordon. Kristen was winner of the "2018 SCAD Alumni Atelier Award" as the Artist in Residence, Lacoste. Kristen's work can be seen here  and more about SCAD in Lacoste here

A great shot of the artist at work... She does beautiful work - a bit pricey - but I'm sure worth it if you have it!
I think it's great that SCAD has a campus in Lacoste!
Alan: Steve went back with his wife the following week but luckily she is too sensible to let him buy a gift for her from Kristen! (Steve had since bought a new lenses for his camera around the same price of some of Kristen's sets.)

Woman at work - Lacoste seems to be fully in American hands - welcome , no bienvenue - sorry, this is not my page. I like the picture of Kristen, Steve and Gordon with his hat on the bag!
Alan: We had not known that SCAD was based there when we chose the village for our location. I don't think the Americans have taken over; it was mainly French voices we heard in the cafe. We were all fascinated by Kristen's work. Hats were needed outside because of the strong sun. Thanks, Philine.
Are you kidding me??? I had no clue about this, as a former resident of Georgia. I'll have to look into this further.... In the meantime, I love the image, Alan.
Alan: It was all a surprise to us, too. We never did find their campus so it must have been well hidden. I hope Kristen does well in her business.

When I was in the army and my first posting was to a tank regiment (I was with REME), I spent a lot of my time with a soldering iron retiring heads sets that the tankies chopped when pulling down the hatch and leaving the headset outside. It is impossible to avoid burning you fingers ever but you soon learn to avoid that mishap.
Alan: Hahah!! I spent the first three years at BT soldering up all sorts of things; wiring frames, relays racks, uniselectors - all sorts of things. As well as the occasion burn, you also have high amperage DC circuits which gave you a jolt, too, causing you to jump and flicking the solder. Happy days.

That is some serious work here, Alan and also some serious money involved. But then there are always people who likes to buy.
What an opportunity for Kristen.
Alan: Now I could understand spending that sort of money on a decent camera lens or a new bike but never on a piece of Jewellery. smile

She must be a rich young lady, Alan - her work isn't cheap
Alan: No; I thought that. I hope she is successful, though.
A great shot...
Alan: The artist at work. I can't do anything if I'm being watched.
Maureen would be interested in seeing these demonstration.
Alan: It was fascinating to see and she was interesting to talk to.
She produces some beautiful jewellery, Alan. Wish I could afford to purchase some of it.
Alan: Now I could understand spending that sort of money on a decent camera lens or a new bike but never on a piece of jewellery. smile

She is fully engrossed in her work. She produces some pretty items at pretty expensive prices!
Alan: Way out of my price range. You could get a decent camera lens for those prices - far more useful smile
I have a new soldering iron arriving on Monday. I am jumping with joy.
Alan: Now what do you do with a soldering iron, Mary?
