I just wanted to say again how
much I loved the sand dollar
necklace. The peppermint dental
floss was an inspired touch. Who
are you, Ned Plimpton? I find
myself asking that question. I
hope you allow me to find out.
My subject for this post is an amusing quote of the goldsmith Dr. Robert Baines (head of the department at Rmit)
"I don't want to make little badges you know, and little dinky things on thread," he says. "I don't do that. There's a real trend that that's contemporary jewellery and it is valid - I know where the references come from - but it's not me. I am not interested."
I dunno Robert... why not? What's wrong with jewellery?
