It´s been years since the last time I printed fabric using a drawing of my own. I had forgotten how rewarding it is to go through the whole process from illustrating to making the screen and then finally printing a product.

I´ve had this weird fascination with internal organs, bones and such for some time now. I guess it started years ago when I flicked through some old anatomy books with awesome drawings and saw the inner beauty.

One night I couldn´t get any sleep so I started going through some of my old drawings. A few stood out from the crowd and I began merging them together in one drawing. This is what came out: a print called Sisin (Core). While creating it I felt sort of a pressure in my chest, a huge urge to take a deep breath, to turn things inside out, to see and feel what lays beneath the surfice, to grow something new from what you already have. For me Sisin depicts all that. Everyone is free to make their own interpretations or just see the visual side of it.

The same organic theme can also be seen in my other products. For instance my Half of Me – bronze pendant is a good example because the idea for the shape came from a bone.

I created a folder for my art on Piia Myller Design facebook page. Then there´s a few new jewellery pics. Both worth checking out!

This might not be a big revelation but I need to shout it out loud: I have a crush on bronze. It´s a beautiful material full of possibilities. It´s gorgeous and luxurious without being too sumptuous.

Three of my bronze pendants are now available on my Etsy shop! There´s a lot more to come as soon as I can get my hands on them. They reguire quite a lot of finishing but isn´t it worth the effort.

To me this Gentle Stroke -pendant is a perfect combination of grace in design and roughness in the form of material & finishing.

I got the idea for this one while browsing through pictures of bones. This Half Of Me -pendant also reminds me of the unexpected aspects of vacuum casting as well as designing.

This Melting Moments -pendant looks like it´s melting away.

I´m totally mesmerized by the abstract shape where you can see different things depending on your imagination and state of mind.
