jeweller of the month - kadri mälk

Kadri Mälk hails from Tallinn, Estonia. I little i know about Estonia that one of my TAFE teachers spent some time there working and producing jewellery. It is a hub of jewellery wonders. From the Klimt02 website i spotted -

I rang in the new year working... Not the most favorable option but hey its something, great having extra money to play around with.

2011 will bring goodness of all sorts featuring art, love and happiness. I have bought myself a torch, currently waiting on its arrival and the reopening of suppliers in town to have everything i need. I'm hoping to have the whole studio revamped, up and running by beginning of February, excitement cannot be contained.

In other departments 2010 was a hard year, in many regards. I did a great deal of growing up. Learning what really matters when the chips fall, who sticks around. The people you surround yourself with. They know who they are, i value them greatly. Thank You. The rest is white noise, i can do without. Over the the past few days of work (ringing in the new year) have taught me some interesting lessons which i will carry with me for good, for the ones that know me, the chit chat is good, but it should be in moderation. There is no need to fill the silence with noise - white noise for the most part. I have culled half of my possessions. Cathartic is probably the best way to describe it. Much of this idea can now be moved across into other areas of life.
