– Lighthouse (Rhode Island) –

Today I have a nice news to share with you!

My watercolor painting “Lighthouse – Rhode Island” was created last July 2016 during my participation to the first edition of the  World Watercolor Month  a worldwide challenge that did bring together artists from all over the world to create 31 paintings in 31 days. My Lighthouse is actually available in Limited Edition Art Prints on my Etsy Shop Carolina Russo Art  one of prints just Sold recently to a dear friend Whafflemethis part of our Community here on WordPress. I love Lighthouses and seascapes they are so beautiful bring calmness and meditative feelings! When I painted the Original watercolor, I searched for inspiration and I came across beautiful images of “Rhode Island” an US State in New England, lots of lovely views and places. I found over a Google search a beautiful photo  of a lighthouse located near the city of Newport. That was my inspiration for my painting I have posted the photo below for you to see (sorry I don’t know the photographer name to give credit).

WWM Day #22 July 2016 – Lighthouse (Rhode Island) – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Here is the photo that I have received this morning, the painting is beautifully framed in a cherry wood frame,  looks great in his new home in Scotland. Rich aka wafflemethis recently ordered the art print with the option upon request to have the painting mounted with a matt which I personally prepare. This is an option that I offer for a small difference of price to Limited Edition Prints, so that the print when received is ready to be framed. We decided for a blue matt because  brings out greatly the colors of the painting and match with another “Lighthouse” painting of mine that he previously purchased, and I am sure they look great together.

This is the reference photo I used to create the painting in my vision and signature style.

New Design – Love and Peace Necklace

Love and Peace - Design ©Carolina Russo

Love and Peace – Design ©Carolina Russo

Today  I am very happy to introduce a new jewelry design of a powerful necklace that I created few weeks ago inspired by the soul of my dear friend Jessica.
I named this necklace “Love and Peace” and it is part of the Among Nature Jewelry Collection 2016.

It has been quite some time that I haven’t post any new Jewelry Design for my Collection, is because at the moment I have been watercolor painting and creating in Digital more. As you all know by now especially my long time followers and friends here on the Blogosphere I like to work and create with different mediums,. There are certain times where I focus on different things and experiment new creative techniques.

Love and Peace – Design ©Carolina Russo

I loved to create this design and working with the wire for this vertical gemstones pendant that brings meditative and calming feelings. The Pendant is the focal point of this necklace and is completed with a leather tassel.

I used a selection of  natural pale Rose Quartz  gemstones paired with two faceted Czeck smoky crystal beads.

“LOVE” – Rose Quartz is a natural gemstone known also as the Love Stone…
this beautiful crystal emits strong vibrations. The energy that emits clear and purifies, opening the heart to promote love in any situations. Wearing jewelry with rose quartz helps you to feel self-worth love, the vibrations are believed to be calming and relaxing and protect from negativity

I like Rose Quartz, the lovely pale pink color and the translucent transparency inspire me with my designs creating  jewelry that’s connects with the beautiful energy and vibrations this stone has.

The Wire used is silver plated copper.  A tan color flat suede leather cord complete this adjustable necklace.  This necklace match with my other designs where I used Rose Quartz gemstones. All my creations are made with natural gemstones and are single unique pieces, they can be combined or stacked together check my Jewelry Portfolio for more designs and possible combinations also here below in the gallery some of my suggestion for same style designs or stackable ideas:

TheLove and Peace” necklace is available in Limited Edition
for the price of $45 shipping included within US I also ship Worldwide (contact me for shipping rates).

Details…
All my Jewelry Designs are single pieces created to have a life  standing on their own beautifully in their unique and unexpected combinations of natural elements. My work is made as Custom Order made on order and can be purchased and Ordered  here on my Blog  YesterdayAfter.com  or on my Etsy Shop

Jewelry Designs Meanings and Friendship…

– Malibu – Photo ©Carolina Russo

Lack of time today I am going  to share this older post about my jewelry designs. I wrote this post last November when I was lucky to meet in person some amazing Bloggers friends! ❤


– Point Dume –

Point Dume is a promontory on the coast of Malibu, California that juts out into the Pacific Ocean. The point, a long bluff, forms the northern end of the Santa Monica Bay. Wikipedia

Fossil Seashell Fragment found at Point Dume

Fossil Seashell Fragment found at Point Dume

I designed this necklace for my friend blogger and published author  Erika Kind as token of our friendship. If you followed our recent posts you know that we met (read my post) in person last November here in California it was a great experience. Each piece of Jewelry I design has a story behind it. This one symbolize the beginning of our friendship relate to one of our first conversations that we had when we met, and it was about how much Erika love California, the Ocean and the Beach she said that she love “Point Dume” which happen to be a wonderful place in Malibu where I go often and I love to take beautiful photos like this one of the beach where Point Dume promontory is. This is one of the places where I find precious natural elements like fragments of fossil seashells, stones, driftwood all elements gifted from nature that I treasure and collect for my unique jewelry designs.

Fossil Seashelles Fragments, Driftwood

Fossil seashells Fragments, Driftwood

The necklace created for Erika has all the elements to symbolize what she love, it represent the Ocean with the natural beauty of a fragment of a Fossil Seashell,  a Pearl and her favorite Turquoise stone, the blue color of the stone symbolize the sky and the ocean  water,  all the elements are wired together creating a keepsake memories pendant with an adjustable leather cord. This is an example of the concept I work with, to create one of a kind Jewelry. I am very happy that Erika love the necklace very much at the point that when I gave to her she got emotional, that was my greatest gift to see the reaction she had it means I made it through her heart giving her happiness and joy…this is one of the reason why I love my work!

Jewelry Design – Soothing Fire

Soothing Fire Necklace

Soothing Fire Necklace

Today  I am happy to introduce a design of a powerful necklace.
I named this necklace “Soothing Fire” and it is part of the Among Nature Jewelry Collection

Soothing Fire Necklace
I loved to create this design forging and hammering the wire with a twist on the top part of the pendant.
This pendant is made in three parts and like in all of my creations there is no soldering anywhere.

I used a beautiful selection of natural gemstones, Amethyst in different shades from pale to intense purple color, and four faceted Crystals yellow Citrine and smoky Quartz in different shades.

I gave this creation the name Soothing Fire because the Amethyst it is a beautiful purple quartz and emits the positive power of soothing and calming.

The yellow Citrine it is a variety of quartz and the color goes from pale yellow  to intense orange and like the fire emits positive and enlightening energy  and dispel negativity.

This necklace is available in Limited Edition.

Ocean Whispers…

“AMONG NATURE” Jewelry Collection 2016
Jewelry Inspired by Nature ©Design Carolina Russo 

Fossil Seashells Necklace

Unique one of a kind Keepsake Jewelry
“Memories From the Ocean”

This ethnic necklace is part of a unique collection of designs created with elements from the ocean. The necklace has a double pendant wrapped in silver plated copper wire, it can be made also in Sterling silver or oxidized copper. The wire and leather cord are wrapped together around the bigger fossil seashell, holding a second smaller piece. The leather cord made the necklace adjustable in length through sliding knots and has two antiques wooden beads.  The unique pieces of Fossil Seashells were found by me on a beautiful Malibu beach in California. These pieces are one of a kind having different shapes and colors and no one is equal. During my journeys here I found other beautiful stones and more fossil seashell pieces in different shape, size and thickness. All the precious pieces are part of my personal collection to use for my limited edition or one of a kind jewelry designs.

Wave

Ocean whispers…
I love to think that each seashell spent hundred years of life travelling under the beautiful deep blue waters of the ocean until the waves left them on the shore for me to find and infuse them with my own Art. When I create my jewelry I feel very fortunate that, I can bring these seashells back to shine in a new beautiful life, this time it is outside the blue water for us to admire and treasure them like a unique and precious gifts from Nature.

From the ocean copy

Pieces of fossil seashells, coral, drift wood, beach pebbles stones, they all are very beautiful natural elements that I love to use for my jewelry designs. You can see more on my Jewelry Portfolio

Ocean Whispers

This is one of the beautiful Beaches where I love to walk take beautiful photos and find my treasures from the ocean.
