Lately, we’ve been working alongside Peer Art Group, a bunch of artists in Norwich who all have “proper” jobs. The group is a great catalyst for any artist though. Having left university in June 2011, I hadn’t really made much artwork; as such, I was glad to find a group of like-minded people who I could bounce ideas off!
Our first exhibition was at STEW Gallery, which also has its own artist studios and printing rooms. The criteria was simple; we could submit as many pieces of work we wanted, and it could be any medium. I submitted an old piece of work based on Ovid’s Metamorphosis alongside the range of jewelry I’ve been making as PinPinFinds. It was nice to see my jewelry considered “art”, and I don’t think that’s such a strange concept – fashion can certainly be considered art.
After a long day curating, it was good to see everyone chilling out and enjoying the work. Someone had even brought a guitar, so I did what any sensible person would do – played a guitar with my hands and a tambourine with my feet!
Well, we finally got round to launching our Autumn Collection- a mystical mix of laser cut moths, holographic crystal eyes and magicians props! And it’s going to be PinPinFinds’ 1st birthday on September 25th- we can’t wait! Here’s a mythical world of photos for you to step into.
Our new Moth and Butterfly Necklaces will be £12.00 each, and we hope that Arts Desire in Norwich will be stocking them for us. You can always buy them from our website pinpinfinds.storenvy.com too for $20.00!
All will be available to buy in the next couple of weeks, but if you really can’t wait that long how about pre-ordering them? Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me what you’d like!
On another note, we have another Makers Market coming up! We are just so excited!
