If you like to participate in holiday giving, now is the right time to come in to our store and see all the amazing pieces we have. Our designers are working hard to make new and exciting pieces for the holidays, and we have something to suit every budget and pretty much every style. The variation in the approach from artist to artist means that every piece is a bit different and there’s something for every taste.
So come on down and see all the magical jewellery that’s just waiting for you!
So, I very rarely get the chance to get away, so when a friend offered the opportunity to visit Las Vegas, I said “yes, please!”. So, that’s where I was last week; playing hooky from all things work. But, you know, I still love art, and took the opportunity to visit the “Art District”. A bit north of the main strip, it’s a slightly odd place to visit, but fun.
I saw alot of graffiti. Interestingly, apparently this is an area that you can go to and try out different things, which I thought was an interesting concept.
More graffiti, it’s not always my thing, but I can appreciate when there is a bit more art to it.
I also saw a lot of building murals, which were quite interesting. Here are some examples of what you can see there, from the surreal, to the political. Some are very polished, and others less slick, but still visually very interesting.
If you’ve never been there, it was definitely worth the walk around, especially if you’re looking for a break from the Strip (which, frankly, is pretty much constant sensory overload!).
It remains to be seen as to whether what I viewed will inspire me to develop new pieces, but I guess time will tell!
If you’re hanging around Roncevalles this weekend, pop into the Big Blue House and see what new art we’ve got for your viewing pleasure (or purchasing pleasure :). We always look forward to seeing you!
Have a great weekend, and I hope you see something that inspires you!
It’s that time of year again… The weather is getting colder, decorations are going up – the holidays are just around the corner! ✨
