Its about 15cm (6 inches) long.
Its for the 'Melodious Art' Exhibition at Uxbridge, Howick's Creative Centre during August 2009. This piece was inspired by The Hebrides Overture - one of my favourites, which I used to play (clarinet) with the Berkshire Youth Chamber Orchestra when I was young, once upon a time in England.........
I'm the cephalopod loving redhead behind Ginga Squid studio. In previous lives I've been an engineer, accountant, scuba instructor and most recently - a mum to 2 gorgeous little kiddies (well they are most of the time)!
I love creating things - it keeps me sane. I particularly love sourcing interesting, unusual and rare natural gemstones and fossils (its my equivalent of a shoe addiction).
I also love colour - bring it on!
I like to use beads in my work that I can buy Fair Trade from developing countries, so helping the craftspeople directly.
