My photo
Su Trindle is a British designer and maker of sculptural modern silver and resin jewellery. My favourite place to be is my small workshop in my garden. I work alone, singing along to the radio striving to create beautiful well-designed, contemporary jewellery and make a living at it. This last is important, not just to my creativity and ego but to help feed by boys and the dog.

Good Things

I just thought I'd share a good thing with you. I was really pleased to be the featured "Meet the Maker" in Frankly Magazine this week. In all honesty, it took a while for me to get the photographs together and answer Emily Barnes' patient questions. The delay was all on my part and I was wondering why this was. I think it's an uncomfortable thing for an artist to put themselves out there. Mostly I work alone in my workshop and, of course, all my creative stuff is in my head and I'm not sure it's all suitable for sharing. I express myself through my work I work hard to create a perfect finished piece. This piece of jewellery is now ready for someone else to wear and add meaning to. It is no longer mine. So, it's more than a little bemusing when people want to know about the real me and my processes. So, yeah, I am always hesitant about answering questions and a little worried about the reaction I'll get. I shouldn't be because I've been featured in a lot of lovely places and every single response has been interesting and kind and a huge boost to my creative self-esteem. So, if you are lucky enough to be interviewed about your work, I'd say, put way your doubts, share your processes and your creative stuff. Go on, dare you!
