Weekly Photo Challenge: “I’d Rather Be…” Creating

Forest Goddess – Original Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Today weekly photo challenge for  The Daily Post  theme  is ““I’d Rather Be…” and my answer is Creating!

I love to create my art and express my creativity in many different ways, I am a full-time artist and I love what I do. For me there is not much of “I’d rather be” because I try to create art every day! I am a watercolor painter, an illustrator and jewelry designer, I love photography and digital photo manipulations. I also like to write poems, haiku and short stories.  

Day #15: Witch _ Mysterious

 

My watercolor painting series are all available in Limited Edition Signed Fine Art Prints.

Day #2 Goblin Divided – Supplies

I love to create photo manipulations and I have created a Collection titled “When Nature Meets Humans” this Portrait title is “Proud” I like the Concept to mix Nature with Humans and create a unique One of a kind Digital Portraits. This is my evolving  idea and concept to combining the beauty of Nature with Humans telling a story in the form of Visual-Art, combining and blending a number of different photos in one unique portrait. Each photo has a meaning that tell the Portrait story. You can see more of this collection here and in this Gallery.

Nature is my biggest inspiration in everything I create…

I also love to create jewelry for  my “Among Nature” Jewelry Collection.
The nature is my greatest inspiration for my Jewelry Designs. I often use found in nature objects hand-picked by me in special places I visit.  All my creations are made using only beautiful natural gemstones, seashells, fossils, woods, bone and crystals which  I combine with precious and semi precious metals.

Sometimes I write when words are whispered to my soul…this is one of my poems

Hands

Artist precious hands,
intensity and love givers.

Hands guided by a heart pulse,
forging and hammering metals,
holding precious stones.

Inspiration from the soul,
happiness  and art givers,
emotions in a motion of senses.

stroking brushes fulfilled with passion,
dripping water on white paper,
splashes of colors take forms.

Ink tears into the unknown
a creation is born.

Today I am going to share one of my jewelry design and unique creation.

“Memories from the Ocean” Necklace

This beautiful one of a kind necklace is part of a new concept I am launching here.
This concept is about creating unique Keepsake Memories Jewelry with found objects.
I love bringing to life unique jewels created with objects found in our precious nature.

Beautiful Finds

For this necklace I used beautiful founds  from the Ocean. Drift wood, fossil seashells, red coral. Pieces of seashells smoothed and shaped from years and years of ocean’s erosion. The uniquely shaped piece of driftwood, was, what inspired me to make this statement necklace right at the moment I found it on a beautiful California beach.  I left the wood natural just like I found it, I didn’t want to add any oil or wax because the wind and waves did their beautiful work of natural art.

Whenever I go, I am always looking out for interesting pieces of nature, treasures to keepsake and add to my collection and use them later for my art and creations. This way every design it is One of a Kind and has his own story behind it and I love that!

For this necklace I used Copper wire left natural and not oxidized, so that the time will create the natural patina on it. I have created three hanging pendants with pieces of natural gemstones, Red Coral, Amazonite and Agate, three faceted Crystals, yellow Citrine, Smoky and Clear, a Fossil Seashell piece with a natural hole and an Abalone piece. This combination of pieces is beautiful and the gemstones colors  perfectly remind the ocean water. I wrapped the copper wire to the driftwood following the natural curves and holding the pendants. A tan color flat suede adjustable leather cord is the finishing touch for this unique  necklace.

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

I also accept custom orders creating a “Keepsake Memories Jewelry” a design piece with your own special memories or found objects in nature, or not I can create your own story. If you are interested in a special piece don’t hesitate to Contact me.

A sophisticated accent to the primitive Tribal look is given from the beautiful variety of gemstones –
Rose Quartz Beauty and Love – Blue Quartz Harmony and Clarity – Agate Strength and Acceptance –  Mother of Pearl  Protective and Calming –

Crystal Amplifies – Turquoise Courage and Protection.

You can see it on me, I have one for myself!
I wore it when I had a meet up with some of my dearest Bloggers friends here on WordPress as you can see,
the necklace has a unique look that can change moving the Turquoise center piece up and down can turn in a choker or in an asymmetrical necklace.

More similar designs would be created and added time to time to this beautiful collection, so far there are three designs, this is the second.
The first one was this the “Strength And Harmony” necklace,

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.

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
