Your chance to own a piece of contemporary jewellery! Suspended in Pink Raffle   

Musings about the Suspended in Pink Raffle.

Thanks to Marthe Le Van's recent article, I have been thinking about the 'Suspended in Pink' raffle.

Here is an extract:

"As a retail storeowner and salesperson, the raffle felt amateurish, gimmicky, and a bit desperate—like when I heard about Facebook for the first time. Ultimately, after reconciling all my perspectives, I believe there is much to applaud in the Suspended in Pink raffle. It feels fresh and innovative, optimistic and courageous, liberating and democratic—all worthy consequences pointing toward progress"

Now, I have no problem at all about an idea of mine being compared to the early Facebook- and I am the first to admit the visuals, practicalities and how the raffle is presented still needs some work!
Most raffles are devised as a means of fundraising, to enable an exhibition, event etc... Seen by the  Borax Collective , Handshake Jewellery and an American Art Jewellery group  ( i am sure there are many many more).

And as Le Van notices, through her many astute questions, fundraising is not the aim of the 'Suspended in Pink' Raffle...

So what is it? and WHY should you take part?

I go to many many exhibitions every year. But As a wanna-be collector, I have only three small pins.
I dont want a specially designed brooch with a groups logo on it, a sample piece or a bunch of postcards as a consolation prize- I want THE piece. 

          I want to own Silke Fleischer's amazing necklace and Sam Hamilton's 'Bread' Like brooch.

As a practitioner is who interested in engagement and audience interaction, I am always looking for ways to get my audience to wear the jewellery, understand it, and imagine owning it- and that, in my view, is the real strength of the 'Suspended in Pink' raffle.

So the idea of raffling off one of the jewellery pieces from the Suspended in Pink Exhibition seemed an obvious idea.

 But its more then that.... Once a viewer decides   they wish to take part in the raffle, they then can spend up to an hour, going through the exhibition, trying on the jewellery, comparing, assessing, deciding which item THEY would take home.

Deciding which piece of jewellery spoke out the most to them.

And this was then the piece that they would then bet on.
Maybe they would win it, maybe not- but for £5/€6/$8 it seems like a worth while experience to have- the experience of wearing and imagining that favourite piece of jewellery which YOUR ticket could win you....

And here is the good news- the odds of winning in this raffle are actually really high!

Only a small number of people have guessed the same names, and there are a number of exhibitors who's name has not been guessed yet-

So you have a real chance of winning....

All you have to do is email:
with: your name, the name of the artist who you want to win-

And to send payment of £5/€6/$8 by paypal to:

The winner is announced this Autumn!


Its Raffle Time!!!!!   

Do you want to own a piece of contemporary jewellery? Do you want to win a piece of Jewellery by one of the artists taking part in 'Suspended in Pink'?
If so, this is how!

On the 10th of January, during our fantastic private view- One of THESE artists names was chosen from a hat:
Alexandra Hopp, Andrea Coderch, Annette Dam, Babette Von Dohnanyi, Claire Lavendhomme, Claire McArdle, Corrado de Meo, Demitra Thomloudis, Drew Markou, Erica Voss, Farrah Al-Dujaili, Galatée Pestre, Helena Johansson, Heng Lee, Isabel Dammermann, Iris Eichenberg, Jane Richie, Jo Pond, Jorge Manilla, Josephine Siwei Wang, Karen Bartlett, Karen Vanmol, Karin Roy Andersson, Kate Rohde, Katharina Moch, Kevin Hughes, Lauren Markley, Laurence Verdier, Lital Mendel, Lynn Batchelder, Mallory Weston, Masako Hamaguchi, Michelle Kraemer, Minna Karhu, Patricia A Gallucci, Rachel McKnight, Réka Fekete, Rhona McCallum, Ria Lins, Sam Hamilton, Silke Fleischer, Sofia Björkman, Thea Clark, Vinit Koosolmanomai, Yeseul Seo, Zoe Robertson.

Jo Pond selected a name from the hat-
The name is sealed in the pink envelope, ready to be revealed in August! 

So, Now, All you have to do is:
1. Guess who's name is in the envelope
2. Purchase a raffle ticket (£5/€6/$8) by contacting Laura at, or at one of the exhibitions
3. Love and look after your ticket until the end of our exhibition at the Heidi Lowe Gallery, to see if you have won an item of jewellery from one of our exhibitors!!!!

So, Where does your money go?
Firstly, I truely believe that all artists should be paid for their hard work! SO, rather then asking the participanting artists in 'Suspended in Pink' to donate a piece of jewellery, we shall be purchasing that item, using the money raised in the raffle. Any extra earned income will be invested in the the exhibition, allowing use to travel to new additional and exciting venues throughout the year!

Thanks to Marthe Le Van for aking these questions- hope I have answered them :)

 What if no one guessed the right jeweler? 
Ans: We will chose another name from a hat, and will keep doing it until we have a winner!

What if several people did? 

Ans: We will put there names in a hat and chose from one of these names. Those who guessed right, but did not win the actual piece will win a very small consolation prize.

Who pays shipping and customs? 
Ans: I do!

Will the package be insured? 
Ans: Yes!

Any further questions on this are welcome, just contact Laura at

Articles of Punishment   


Articles of Punishment is a six-piece set of smart-propped whips for Genesis in DAZ Studio. All pieces have Pose Control dials to facilitate movement of the entire strand at once. The three with multiple strands have controls for each individual strand and for moving all of the strands together. Bloody and clean presets and good tiling shaders make these suitable for realistic, historical and 3D fantasy scenes.

Articles of Punishment features these pieces:

The Captain's Daughter: Historically 30 inches long and made of rough braided rope, the cat oÕ nine tails or Captain's Daughter was a nine-stranded whip used as an instrument of corporal punishment on ships in Her Majesty's Navy during the Napoleonic Wars. The purpose was to inflict discomfort without crippling a sailor to the point of being unable to perform his duties, contrary to cinematic depiction.

The Scourge: More austere orders of monks once used a whip of rawhide thongs for harsh self-discipline. This was intended to turn the mind away from evil and impure thoughts as much as it was a punishment for sins. The five-stranded scourge is longer than the cat oÕ nine tails because it needs to be able to reach back over one's own shoulders.

The Iron Star Scourge: Only the very sternest members of an order of monks used this, a seven-stranded whip made of iron links and sharp stars.

The Bullwhip: Originally this tightly braided leather whip was used for herding cattle in Australia and the United States. The length and shape of this whip allows it to create a small sonic boom at the end of the throwing motion, releasing a distinctive sharp crack.

The Short Whip: Also called a yard whip or stock whip, this was used in cattle yards or other confined areas where the longer whip would be difficult to use properly.

The Great Knout: This long whip with an iron ring near the end was used for corporal punishment long ago in Russia. Twenty blows with this whip could be fatal because hard blows with the ring could break a person's back.

Baroque Grandeur   


Baroque Grandeur - The state or quality of being grand; vastness; greatness; splendor; magnificence; stateliness; dignity - or in this case, all of the above.

Included in this pack is a detailed reception room in the Baroque style, fully customizable with separate modular wall sections, doors, columns, ceiling, floor and authentic furniture pieces. Great care has been taken to detail every inch in authentic period design, from the architecture and decoration, through to the styling of the furniture. Ornate details are in both the geometry and texture maps to create an intricate and accurate architectural pack which is as versatile as it is detailed.

We have included several preload presets to quickly get you started, as well as basic presets to allow each piece to be customized. Wall sections can be interchanged with doors, or even windows as well as the wall columns that can also be interchanged.

To get the maximum out of this product, we recommend a decent PC with lots of RAM. We have tried to cater for the lower end of the spectrum too by dismantling the set - so by stripping out things that aren't required in a scene it should work fine on low-end PC's too!

Please note: this is a re-release of the original Baroque Grandeur product from 2009. This new version includes a new texture pack and all new, full DAZ Studio 3+ support (scene files, materials and light sets). This and the original can be used at the same time and reside in a single Runtime folder without any problems.

Quod Libet review - Sounds of music?   


My music requirements are simple. I have many great qualities, but a refined ear isn't among them. With an aural sensitivity of a comodo dragon, my needs come down to a simple player that is pleasing to the eye, comes with a semi-modern layout, and most importantly, will not annoy me with badly arranged albums, titles and tags. The last piece has been my chief music-related woe for years.

When it comes to music players, I'm kind of okay here. VLC does the job, and when you tweak it, it's quite delightful one must say. Then, when I'm feeling adventurous, there's Clementine, which features splendidly on the desktop, with a clean interface and tons of goodies. And yet, now and then, I go about testing music applications, because music collections won't sort themselves, now will they. To wit, Quod Libet.
