The so-called ‘psychotically depressed’ person who tries to kill herself doesn’t do so out of quote ‘hopelessness’ or any abstract conviction that life’s assets and debits do not square. And surely not because death seems suddenly appealing. The person in whom Its invisible agony reaches a certain unendurable level will kill herself the same way a trapped person will eventually jump from the window of a burning high-rise. Make no mistake about people who leap from burning windows. Their terror of falling from a great height is still just as great as it would be for you or me standing speculatively at the same window just checking out the view; i.e. the fear of falling remains a constant. The variable here is the other terror, the fire’s flames: when the flames get close enough, falling to death becomes the slightly less terrible of two terrors. It’s not desiring the fall; it’s terror of the flames. And yet nobody down on the sidewalk, looking up and yelling ‘Don’t!’ and ‘Hang on!’, can understand the jump. Not really. You’d have to have personally been trapped and felt flames to really understand a terror way beyond falling.

I cried all night because my fiance doesn’t love me anymore and now my fucking eyelids have swollen. So now instead of just being sad I am both sad and ridiculous looking.

Investigating possible options for study if I decide to move to Melbourne before completing my degree. I think I really want to major in Jewellery & Small Objects for my Fine Arts degree, but it’s hard to find a uni in Melbourne that has jewellery & smithing studios.

So far I’ve found RMIT offers gold & silversmithing and I’ve read from a blog that Monash offers jewellery but can’t find anything on their website to back this up.

It looks like I would have to extend my degree out by another year to study at RMIT, which I am really not keen on. Does anyone have any advice or any feedback about studying jewellery-making as part of RMIT or Monash’ s fine arts bachelors?

It was an honour to create Dawn’s bespoke 9ct White Gold and Herkimer ‘Diamond’ Quartz combined engagement/wedding band. Dawn expressed a love of minerals, so we chose a brilliant Herkimer for it’s natural crystalline aesthetic.
I love creating custom pieces for special occasions; please email aliciahannahnaomi@gmail.com with inquiries. #aliciahannahnaomi
Congratulations Dawn and Neil 💛
