My 3 Original questions for everyone to answer:

My soul is deep blue I don’t know why but if I have to imagine what color is I see it in all the shades of blue. My soul is very receptive and absorbing a lot from the outside. Is very balanced but sometimes can have some great picks on things I like and love. My soul has perseverance and takes challenges I am always been thinking “if you don’t try you never know!” I refer this quote to my Art and creativity! My soul fight for what I believe in. My soul wouldn’t ever tried things that would harm myself in a negative way. My soul is encouraging and positive to others and myself.

2. What are you working on right now?

Right now I am working mainly on my Jewelry Collection on custom orders and non! I am trying to promote my creations and online stores as I want to share them with the world. I am also working on designs for other future projects I have in mind. I always keep sketching and I take notes of any kind of creative idea pops in my mind. I also took a break for a while from watercolor painting and I would like to go back on it soon! In the main time instead painting I am more working on Digital Art who I love. There are so many things that my creativity lead me to want do that I feel like I don’t have enough time during the day!

3. What is your creative dream project?

My Dream Project it is a real dream! One day I would love to be able to have my own Atelier Studio Gallery in a nice place, where I can work, display and sell all my creations of every kind together. This magical place will reflect my Art and taste in everything from the interiors to the products I design extends to Fashion, Jewelry, Art and Interiors it would be so magical what I have in mind…for now my Atelier is virtually here on YesterdayAfter taking shape day after day… the future? Who knows never say never… 🙂

  1. Who has been the starlight in your life?
    Beside my family, my starlight in my life has been always “my heart” I did follow my heart in any situation.

  2. What is your biggest dream and how are you working on its realization?
    My big dream?  You can read all about it on my original answer #3 here above 🙂

  3. What do you want to leave here on earth?

Great Award Season – Blog Tour Award!

blogtourawardMy special thanks goes to the wonderful Anne for her nomination of the Blog Tour Award. I am very happy to accept the nomination with great honor because she decided to choose me and my Blog between millions of great other ones. Please visit her blog she is a fabulous writer of beautiful stories and novels, sure you will have a good reading time with her.

The rules:

  1. Pass the tour on up to four other bloggers.
  2. Give your nominees the rules and a specific Monday to post.
  3. Answer four questions about your creative process which lets other bloggers and visitors know what inspires you to do what you do.
    • How does my work differ from others in my genre?
    • How does my writing/creative process work?
    • Why do I write or create what I do?
    • What I’m working on at the moment?
  4. Compose a one-time post on a specific Monday (date given from your nominator).

1. How does my work differ from others in my genre?

I am an Artist designer and my Art extends in many different ways. I like to have my designs and creations recognizable. I am hoping that when people see them they know it is mine  without seeing my signature. I like to stand out from the mass-produced in anything I create. In my jewelry collection I like to work on One-of-a-Kind and Limited Edition pieces only. I like “uniqueness” because  each jewel will be a little different from one another. In my artistic vision I believe that each person is different and deserves uniqueness. My jewelry is uniquely made especially for you.

2. How does my writing/creative process work?

My creative process start from my inspirations. I get inspired from almost anything, it can be all of a sudden something pops in my mind, or just looking outside the window…anything can be the start of a great creation for a painting a sketch or  jewelry. Often, while making my jewelry, I get inspired by selecting the beautiful natural gemstones, their colors, their meanings and their powers.  My creativity leads my hands to forge and hammer the metal around it creating a shape that will complete the natural stone bringing to life a wonderful creation. I like to write a little story  for each jewelry piece and give to each one a meaningful and powerful title. I always create a custom packaging including my Certificate of Authenticity.

3. Why do I write or create what I do?

I have been an artist since I was a little girl. My great inspiration started at home. Growing up I have been surrounded by my father beautiful oil paintings and more of his art.  I always had the love for drawing, create and handcrafts.  I have been following my heart and path, believing that anything is possible if you truly believe in it and in yourself. Be creative is in my genes it is what I am.  Each item I design it is special, unique and has a piece of my own story and background, there is my soul and heart in every creation I made.
I always loved to design what I was feeling…make my own path and right now my dream is to  share it with the world and with you.  I would like for you to express yourself and be able to create your own mutable story-style day by day, feeling special, beautiful and unique wearing my creations. I am happy when I can make someone happy!

4. What I’m working on at the moment?

At this moment my primary focus it is creating new designs for my “Among Nature” Jewelry Collection 2015″ jewelry inspired by nature. I will keep shooting and staging all my jewelry photos.  Working on this website blog which make me happy.  I came across to wonderful inspiring people. I love to create all the graphics that you see here. And… there are many other things that I would be doing artistically… 🙂

The Monday I choose for the nominees is June 8! Post anything you want on this particular day! Just pingback your own Blog Tour Award post on that day! 🙂 

My nominees are:

Mihaela Beads Academy
Bruno Shooting Venice and More
Erika  Erika Kind
Wilson Storing Hope
Moxie Moxieluster
575 🙂  thehappyhaikuer

These are all wonderful bloggers with great creativity, imagination and art. I choose more than requested by the rules, six bloggers insteed than four, because lately I came across several amazing blogs that I want to share. Please visit their Blogs and enjoy their posts, as I do anytime.

Congratulations to all…

New Design – Life of Courage and Truth

This week has been pretty full of nice things, I had new amazing followers, I have been nominated with 3 Blogger Awards, I am thrilled and I really appreciate and I am grateful to anyone that included me in these nominations! I have accepted all of them of course, but I had not time yet to complete my acceptance for “The Creative Blogger” and  “Liebster blog Award” I will soon!

During the past days I have been working on several Artistic projects beside focusing on this Blog!

I have been working on Photography, Digital Art, new sketches and my Jewelry, bringing to life a new design “Hoops earrings” I like hoops I wear them all the time and I love how this design turned out they looks amazing on!
This design feature a large Silver wired, hammered and forged hoops having a charm made with natural powerful gemstones I used Amazonite, Red Coral, and faceted Crystal. I love the combination of colors of these three gemstones and their great meanings.

Hoop coral earrings4

Amazonite takes the name from the Amazon river it is the stone of Courage and Truth. This gemstone it is used in Jewelry from way long time since the Mesopotamian Cultures. The wonderful light blue-green color remind the water  it is soothing and calming for the soul. Emits powers of strong energy.  Was often used as talisman for protection. This beautiful stone is believed to be used from the mythical Tribe of  the courageous and strong Amazonian women warriors.
Red Coral the beautiful Red Coral gemstone symbolize Life and bring messages of peace within self, emits positive energy and protection.
Crystal there is an interesting message for clear crystals and it is that Clear Crystal has the property to amplifier the powers of other gemstones combined with it, in this case it will empower more the Amazonite and Coral.

I named the hoop earrings  “Life of Courage and Truth”
