At last! This is the origin of the title of my blog: a brooch by jeweller Barbara Heath. I saw an exhibition of her work years ago, but couldn't remember her name, only the scintillating name of one of her works. In recent times I have been trawling local libraries for books on jewellery. I found an entire book on her work and this was one of the featured pieces.

Now that I know where the phrase 'aid for the hopelessly inarticulate' came from, I am left wondering if I should do something about it? I feel relieved to be able to acknowledge a source of inspiration. However I am not sure if, in her place, I would be flattered or bothered if someone borrowed the name of something I created, to use for themselves.
