***Renee Blackwell’s book Adornments from the Soul is just as the title suggests, a soulful journey through that which is beautiful because it is aged, and that which is beautifully ageless. On one side of the pages, photos of the old; patinas, rusts and weathered colors are captured in clean lines and colors, perfectly partnering with her new, unique sparkling jewelry creations on the mirroring page. We can see the balance of color and pattern that inspired Renee to choose just this stone and pair it with just that one, steering her design along the restrained palate of the patinas she so loves. A less sensitive artist may have missed that balance entirely. She has access to stones and buttons from all over the world, and must face a dazzlingly wide selection of possible choices. Utilizing inspiration from something as lowly, as overlooked, even disliked as the results of wind, weather and time as her guide, her selections are soulfully satisfying.
***I really like this book full of photos of Renee’s characteristic jewellery and ideal for my fashion mind in developing ideas for todays Fashion on the Field Hats. The interesting part of this book is the short story how Renee had used all the natural patina colours found during her wide spread travels. Makes me think the perfect match for any creative person to own and certainly would be a winner for my home and fashion studio.
All the best and looking forward to your second book, Renee Blackwell.
