Greetings from the Sunshine Coast of BC, Canada. As a retired Chef, now maker and metalsmith, who assists his wife's growing jewellery business, I was inspired of the GGBO2020. Inspiration requires action or it is lowered in status to entertainment. Once Ben made the details of the 2021 GGBO I saw an immediate way for creative expression. All decisions, the whats and hows and whys, had immediate clarity. The over riding design motif is Kintsugi, in aesthetic and intention. From the building to fret work to video documentation, it is all new to me, so embracing the mistakes will help to further the process.
