Look at this amazing painting! It's so sexy. I'm thinking Meesha could start doing Halloween costumes to match? I want to be a nurse now. I love this piece, I truly do.
Look at the wee little skulls! Ahh! I wish I could wear earrings! I'd snatch these up in a heartbeat!
This set is aptly named "Autumn Flowers". You know you want it! It would be absolutely perfect for...GASP Autumn! This is something you could wear anytime. Beautiful workmanship!
Gosh I love this...This is a elegant cuff that is certain to be an eye catcher! Look how interesting it is! The buttons, the butterfly, the chain, the lace. All of it together is simply stunning! Add a touch of feminity while still giving off a "devil may care" vibe.
ASHLEY: How long have you been a maker of handmade jewerly and How long have you been painting?
MAUDE: My journey with jewellery started 3 years ago. It all began when i saw the picture of a wonderful bracelet on Deviantart. It was super pretty and i thought it would be fun to give it a try. So, i went to the closer supply shop and purchased some beads and wire to play around with it. It was love at first try ! :)
A bit later i figured it would be awesome to make professional looking jewellery and have the opportunity to actually make a jewel the way i wanted. Therefore, i signed up for school and started in august 2009. I will be done with class in december and i hope to be able to set up my buisiness and start selling my very own creations pretty soon!
As for painting, i always been more of a drawer then a painter.. I never liked painting that much because it wasnt giving as sharps and precises results as a pencil would. I gave it a try some months ago and actually liked the results so i kept going !
ASHLEY: If you could do anything in your lifetime, no matter how impossible, what would it be?
MAUDE: Woah.. that's a super good question ! If I go to the super impossible awesome things i would do i guess i would take over the world and try to bring things back to " normal " and make eath a better place to stay ( That just so sounded like a miss world speach right? ). But yeah .. i would do anything to open peoples' eyes on how bad the situation is on earth. That we do need to be careful with all the waste, pollution, destruction we create and make everyday. The earth is not going to be able to support this forever. It would be just great to make it a better place to live with better air to breath, no stupid useless wars, no judging people in any ways.. no crimes .. A perfect world to be brief lol .. but yep, that's impossible.
On a more realistic side, i want and plan to have my own workshop at home and it would be just great to be able to live from my art. Have a lot of people knowing and loving my buisiness. When it will be running good enough i would like to open a little contest for the youngsters around here who wants to take jewellery class and help them pay their studies. It would be great to help someone out.
(Thank you for stroking my ego there;D)
ASHLEY: What inspires you the most?
MAUDE: What inspire me the most for my work is simply my surroundings. Peoples, objects, fashion or my very own tastes. I'm a very artistic and creative person so the ideas always come and goes.
In general life, i'm super inspired by the strong and determined persons who just go and do what they have to do and never give up. I try my best to be that kind of persons all the time but hey, i have my hard days too ;)
ASHLEY: What came first, the chicken or the egg?
MAUDE: Definatly the chicken! There had to be one chicken to lay eggs and make more chickens.. Tho that chicken must come from an egg too.. Or was it just a super great chicken that went POOF and appeared on earth? Oh dear God i hate that question... Imma go chicken anyway! :P
(LMAO! I'm going to ask that question more often. It seems to lead to bouts of hilarity and mass confusion.:D)
