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.

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! ❤

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.

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.

Soothing Fire Necklace3

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.

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.

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

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

A Two Weeks Review Of Gratitude And Blessings

Read about our beautiful Meeting in California and the personal experience of Erika 2 weeks in USA… ❤

Blogger Girls1 copy

Erika Kind

I heard sceptic voices regarding meeting bloggers in person because of a possible disappointment. My own experience was nothing like that at all. I did not have any expectations about the wonderful people I was going to meet. They already captured my heart for months and I dare to say that we did know each other by heart. That is why it was not necessary that any ice needed to be broken. There simply was no ice. We all embraced each other with arms wide open! We laughed and joked about all the things we were posting about. It truly were meetings between old friends! I am already thinking about my next trip. I will make it an effort that at least once in my life I want to embrace the people I call my friends, brothers, and sisters!

Today I am going to share my new design and unique creation.

“Memories from the Ocean” Necklace

This beautiful 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.

For this necklace I used beautiful found  from the Ocean. Drift wood, fossil seashells, red coral and pieces of seashells smoothed and shaped from years and years of ocean’s erosion. The beautiful 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.

I created three hanging pendants with pieces of Red Coral, Amazonite and Agate gemstones, three different 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 color perfectly remind the ocean water. I wrapped the copper wire to the driftwood following the natural curves and holding the pendants.
