THESE GORGEOUS JEWLERY FOCALS WERE DESIGNED AND MADE USING THE STAMPS THAT I SELL ON ETSY. AREN'T THEY AWESOME?
The artist is Laurie Matthews and she is a seller on ETSY. Check out her little jewelry shop at www.WearableArtByLaLi.etsy.com
And you can find the stamps she used at www.artisticrenderings.etsy.com
Laurie used: Ginkgo Biloba, Fairy Tale, Mega Jungle Love, Persian Rug, After the Rain and Tribal Zentangle stamps for the pieces shown.
BEAUTIFUL pieces. My favorite is the Fairy Tale one.
Our "storm" has provided me a LOT of inside time and I have loved it. Something to blame and enjoyment to be had.
I have been busy painting, Reading m Visual Journaling in preparation of some self exploroation with images, thinking about some mixed media pieces, working with the rubber stamps I sell and polymer clay, designing some new jewelry using antlers, gemstones, handmade lamp work, etc. and another new book on Looming / Weaving and checking over the mid sized loom I purchased for myself given to myself from Santa. Gathering weaving materials from my "stash" and looking forward and loving the anticipation of "STARTING" some new and totally different pathways.
I love doing things I love.
I am SOOOOO glad that 2016 is nearly over. It has emotionally, physically, and spiritually, been a nightmare and hopefully I am waking up and on my way to understanding and having some balance in my day to day life. My Mom always told me that life was "your hell" and with what this year has been like I really have to agree with her.
So I "anticipate" 2017 and KNOW that it is most definitely going to be a "better year" than last. New starts, new journeys, new endings, learning experiences, etc.
So for those who check in periodically.......Happy Holidays. A healthy, prosperous, New Year and blessings each and every day.
These pieces require larger hole beads to fit onto the "blank rod surface". I love both of the items and use them on a regular basis. The bracelet helper is a real gem.....but so is the magnifying glass when you can't see that REAL small print that is so stupid for us older people. Time to scour my stash for more beads......which are handmade by various artists from US and overseas.
