I recently had a chance to go to Venice! Because my Masters project is based on historical decoration, it was a perfect place to do project research (and have an excuse to enjoy the sunshine and eat amazing Italian food again!)
I went to Venice last year at the end of an Italian study program and saw the main sights and did most of the main activities (St. Mark’s Square, Murano, Burano, Rialto Market, vaporetto rides up and down the Grand Canal…). This trip I had a chance to slow down and appreciate the little things a bit more. I had a chance to go to some good museums, see inside some gorgeous old buildings, and I got to spend a lot of quality time walking through the streets snapping photos of pretty things that caught my eye. I got loads of new ideas for jewellery designs, so hopefully those ideas will filter down into reality some time in the near future.
In the meantime, thought I’d leave you with a few photos from the Venice trip. Because the internet is a large place and I’d rather not give the whole world free reign of my images, I’ve only uploaded small, lower-quality images, but if you’re interested in seeing a larger version, just send me an email and I’ll see what I can do for you: firstname.lastname@example.org
