Texture.

Its a big deal in my work. I love that jewellery allows us to express texture, its so tactile and has the all important 3-D element. I noticed yesterday when I was on the glass torch that I have to leave raised bits and texture on the surface of a bead before I am happy with it and want to work with it further! The little jaggy lines in my drawings represent texture too, and my favourite photos are always those with a contrast between something rough and smooth.

Here is what I mean.

Tactile, tactile and more tactile.
