The Talaru Blog

This blog is where I will write at length about topics of relevance to my design work, production processes and personal collections. You are free to comment on these posts as I welcome the chance to engage in a dialogue with my customers.

 

Blog Archive

I’ve been blogging since 2008. You can read about the early development of my creative style and the things that have inspired me over the years in my blog.

As there are years worth of posts over at my old blog, I have only transferred the last 12 months or so to this website. If you wish to take a trip down my memory lane you can visit the blog archive and view these older posts here: BLOG ARCHIVES

I'm sure I have used the heading 'Life speeds up' for a post in the past, but again, it happens that there is so much going on that I'm having to be hyper-organised in order to get everything done that I want to do. I will always make time for jewellery...

...and my mind, or so it would seem after looking at my latest creations. There is a distinctly Parisian theme, and there are still more 'City of Lights' pieces partially constructed, sitting on my work bench. I am not sure what brought about this unintended theme - maybe it's that I...

It's been a while since I last made some antique assemblage designs. Far too long. I really love working in the tribal style and the challenge that comes from using materials and techniques that are new to me. Eventually I return to the source and today I made two antique assemblage necklaces...

I think I've just experienced the worst ever customer service known to humankind. I ordered some 2 part epoxy clay that you can mould, texture and impress with a pattern and it will then harden without having to fire it in a kiln. It is expensive and I needed black coloured...

I love when Australia Day falls on a weekend. That means we get the Monday off as a public holiday. This year, I spent the entire three days making jewellery. Two of those days I was housebound as B had to drive to Sydney and now that we only have...

Wow, what a busy week. Too busy to even explain, but as always I managed to get some making time into my busy schedule. Lots of different rustic, tribal designs for Talaru Tribu. Here they are: [gallery ids="3212,3211,3209,3208,3207,3206"]...

We had a burst of extreme wind today. I thought it was a tornado but it probably wasn't. Trees were bending nearly to the ground, roof sheets were rattling and the house was being buffeted. During this time of wild weather I started putting things together in a way I...

Yes, happy new year to you all! It's been a while. Where has the time gone? Well, a new year has begun and an old one has closed. What a great year it was. I've read mixed reviews from people all around Facebook and online saying that they hope 2014...
