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.

Love and Clarity Necklace – Tribal Collection Jewelry ©CarolinaRusso

This is one of my Jewelry creations, it is a necklace part of my Tribal Collection of Jewelry Designs.
I love to create unusual jewelry, with uncommon shapes and style, reminding the Tribal Talismans.
I named this necklace “Love and Clarity” because some of  the beautiful gemstones meanings.

This necklace feature wire-work wrapped around the gemstones and to the suede adjustable leather cord.
There is a sliding Turquoise Centerpiece that allow to wear the necklace in different ways just moving it.

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,

Strenght and Harmony

And the story will go on….

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

Jewelry Designs Meanings and Friendship…

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

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!
