Last week I made a sample bowl/nest/basket using some of the objects that I've found during lockdown.... . . . #collectprotectcurate #6musicart #mudlarking #mudlarkingfinds #riverwyefinds #riverfinds #rivertreasure #urbanarchaeology #forgottenthingfinder #continuingresearch #cataloguingfinds #museumofmyownmaking

Proud of..... #marchmeetthemaker . I'm proud of a lot of things, sometimes it's the smallest stuff that makes me grin like a Cheshire Cat! It's usually something that nobody else notices but I know that it worked perfectly or that I was absolutely petrified but still did it. Most of the time I keep it to myself, I'm not really any good at the self promotion side of things. My OH (the Badger) constantly goes on at me to be more vocal about the bigger 'wins' and I do try but I always feel odd & a little boastful when I mention something. Anyhoo, what am I proud of right now? Well I'm pretty chuffed at how much I've evolved in the last few years, I'm ecstatically over the moon about what I achieved on my Masters and I'm definitely proud that I haven't just fallen back into my old routine but am continuing with all the reading and researching on the side. Who knows where that adventure may lead! . . . #marchmeetthemaker2020 #collectprotectcurate #thecuriositycupboard #mudlarking #riverthamesfinds #mudlarkingfinds #riverwyefinds #beachcombingfinds #urbanarchaeology #contemporaryarchaeology #intertidalarchaeology #wireandwordtwister #forgottenthingfinder #magicdustcollector #wireworker #creaturemaker

Self care..... #marchmeetthemaker . I'm generally an easy going person, or at least that's what most people think of me, and at times I can even appear to be distant or distracted. It's a coping method that's come from life long anxiety & panic attacks. I'm slowly learning to deal with it in a healthier way by understanding why & what overwhelms me. One thing that has significantly helped has been reconnecting with my passion for finding objects. The fog is now slowly dispersing letting the sunlight break through..... . . . #marchmeetthemaker2020 #selfcare #cptsd #fibromyalgia #collectprotectcurate #mudlarking #riverthamesfinds #mudlarkingfinds #riverwyefinds #beachcombingfinds #urbanarchaeology #contemporaryarchaeology #intertidalarchaeology #forgottenthingfinder

Current project..... #marchmeetthemaker . I feel a bit discombobulated this weekend. I had planned to spend it finishing some creatures for the craft festival in Cheltenham next weekend. The fair has been postponed until August so I've decided to grab the opportunity & spend a few days doing some stuff for me. Today I'm going to finish a sample brooch/pin that I'm making for myself. . Details: reclaimed knitting needle, broken clay pipe piece from the Thames, steel wire, mercerised cotton and ruby bead. . Happy healthy weekend to you all! . . . #marchmeetthemaker2020 #whatsontheworkbench #collectprotectcurate #mudlarking #riverthamesfinds #mudlarkingfinds #riverwyefinds #beachcombingfinds #urbanarchaeology #contemporaryarchaeology #intertidalarchaeology #forgottenthingfinder #wireworker #dorsetwheel

Range..... #marchmeetthemaker . I could have opted to talk about the range of products that I make, or the range of prices, but instead here's a range of materials that I regularly use: Potsherds (broken ceramic pieces), shoe leather, bone, berries, plastic knitting needles, wire, beads, enamelled pennies, clay pipe pieces, rusty bottle tops, vintage thread, lemon peel, avocado stones, old nails, rusty washers, walnut shells, oyster shells, semi precious stones, driftwood, ghost net (the plastic stuff that washes up on the beach), thimbles, flotsam and jetsam. . . . #marchmeetthemaker2020 #collectprotectcurate #mudlarking #riverthamesfinds #mudlarkingfinds #riverwyefinds #beachcombingfinds #urbanarchaeology #contemporaryarchaeology #intertidalarchaeology #forgottenthingfinder
