So, what can be said...well, hopefully im back with avengence. I think mobile blogging is the way to go, this being the first postr sent from my phone.
Any way, about the image. I've been doing allot of experimenting with carbon fiber. my plan at the mo is to build a carbon fiber guitar. I know that sounds rediculous, but its actually working...so far. I have made a mould of the fretboard, and have made a couple prototypes.

I wanted to use PC cases as show cases for my work, but I ended up spending more time on the cases than on making jewellery. So I decided that I would display the cases as the art work. I used the PC power supplies to power the fan and lights in the guitar that I built, connecting the work and entitling it "IC" meaning integrated circuit.

In February I was fortunate enough to be selected to display my work at the Design Indaba in Cape Town. During the Indaba I met a journalist named Rodain Joubert (who hopefully isn't too bumbed that I'm only putting this up now) from South African Computer Magazine, or SACM, as its known. Rodain asked me if he could do an interview for the magazine, and he wrote this
awesome article on technology in art entitled "Move Over Mona Lisa"

Hi everyone. I have just returned from the Design Indaba in Cape Town. Thank you to all the organizers and the people who made the Design Indaba the most amazing expierience of my jewellery career. Thank you to Bev Cupido who was there to make sure that me and the other 39 Emerging Creatives made it there and were able to display our work. And thank you to all who visited my stand and spoke to me.
I will be putting up my photos from Design Indaba and photos of all my new work as soon as i get the pics on my computer, so please check my blog again soon! I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Last night I completed a new computer key brooch. It has a Perspex frame, that was cut on the Roland CNC machine, using Rhino 3D CAD. I went to Mantech Electronics
to try and buy blue flashing LED's, which they did not have. I found something even more amazing, red and blue flashing LED's.

I found Kim Kyeok through one of my favourite websites, geekologie.com .Kim has made a collection of jewellery using emanating LED light in a controlled pattern, to decorate the body. This is something that i've been toying with. In combination with the ideas of Leah Buechley and her e-textiles

But here's a pic which relates. I saw them in London on buildings, and thought they were really amazing way of doing graffiti.
