Back to the Desert

Posted in Uncategorized on December 31, 2009 by tinabarkdesigns

I return to my home in the desert, and instantly feel recharged with creative energy. Huge blue skies and imposing saguaro cacti surround me, the art of Georgia O’Keefe in the forefront of my mind as my current inspiration. I can’t wait to get working!

Fantastic day selling at CAMDEN MARKET!

Saturday was fantastic-fun, as I joined the longstanding tradition of traders at Camden Town’s world-famous market!
The day began bright and sunny, and in true London fashion, the weather turned cold and rainy by afternoon. This however did not seem to phase the throngs of shoppers eager to find original, quality hand-crafted goods for the holiday season.
I absolutely loved getting to talk to all the great people who stopped by my stand to look at the jewelry I’ve been making- talk about it, admire it, buy it… the whole experience was exciting!
Rings from my Desert Flower Series were popular as always, and I got a great response to my new Eclipse Line, especially the earrings and necklaces!
Being that it was my first time selling at Camden Market, I have to give the day a 10 out of 10, and hope I get to do it again soon!

Making jewelry in the bustling city of Chiang Mai in Thailand, with its parades, festivals, temples, smells and noise, is a completely different experience to making jewelry in the seclusion of the arid desert of the American Southwest!
However, I wouldn’t call it peaceful here- the strength of the sun, the sharpness of the thorns jutting out from the numerous cacti, and the ferocity of the wild animals here all create an intense energy thats wrapped in the silent vastness.

Tina Bark starts her career with her Desert Flowers Line

Working in the tranquil haven of the Arizona desert, I am drawing inspiration from my surroundings. On my daily hikes through this magnificent landscape I see such immense beauty- the vast skies and purple mountains… but what really catches my eye are the Wildflowers.
