My First Post Revisited!

MY VERY FIRST POST – #MYFIRSTPOSTREVISITED

A tag started by a blogger/writer called Sarah Brentyn, asking us to revisit our first ever blog posts! ❤

I have been invited by two of my dearest friends here on the blogosphere my dear blog brother Syl65′ and my dear blog sister Erika Kind they both tagged me for this challenge! I thought that was very kind of them thinking of me and what a great way to look back and see how all this amazing time started. Actually It is almost two years ago that I started blogging, to be precise it was the end of March 2015! Soon this month would be my second Blog Anniversary!!! I remembered that my first post was about my Jewelry, that was one of the reasons my Blog was born, to launch one side of my art, my Jewelry Design Collections! I went to look back and found my very first post written on March 24, 2015 only few words, one of my photos and a shy  update announcement! After two years my Blog forged and developed greatly in something complete that reflects what I am. My Blog became also a showroom of all my Art ways, form and expression of my creativity and inspirations. A place of my own that I love so very much, a place where I can share with all of you. A special thanks goes to all my dear followers and friends that supported and encouraged me during these two great years! Thank you!

❤ Here it is my very first Blog Post:

New Update!

Thank You!

 

Here we come to the rules:

Obvious rules:

  • No cheating. (It must be your first post. Not your second post, not one you love…first post only.)
  • Link back to the person who tagged you (thank them if you feel like it or, if not, curse them with a plague of ladybugs).

Other rules:

  • Cut and paste your old post into a new post or reblog your own bad self. (Either way is fine but NO editing.)
  • Put the hashtag #MyFirstPostRevisited in your title.
  • Tag…um…tentwotwelve five (5) other bloggers to take up this challenge.
  • Notify your tags in the comment section of their blog (don’t just hope they notice a pingback somewhere in their spam).
  • Feel free to cut and paste the badge to use in your post.
  • Include “the rules” in your post.

Completely silly rules that I’m making up as I type:

  • Drink a glass of wine, bottle of beer, cup of coffee, mug of herbal tea or whatever floats your boat after you hit “publish”. (In other words, toast yourself. Go you!)
  • Read the post out loud in a Mickey Mouse voice.


Here there are my tag choices:

❤  Miriam

❤  Mark Lanesbury

Jodi McKinney 

Joleene Naylor

Just Plain Ol’ Vic


You are by no mean obligated to participate but if you do would be a fun way to look at your Blog growth and transformation!

Thank you again Syl and Erika for including me in your Tag it was fun to look back to the beginning!

Love you all!

Carolina

Avant garde Tradition & Innovation

I create this unique and beautiful Treasury reflecting my passion for antiques, couture, avant garde tradition and innovation.

I love to share with you this new Treasury with the theme:

Avant garde Tradition & Innovation

I just love to make these very inspiring Treasury Lists on Etsy, it is another way to express yourself throughout things you love.

I already made another one last week with the title:

Creativity and new designs

During this week I have been working on two beautiful custom orders!
I love the process to create a new design, from the starting idea, to the sketches to the end, every time it is a new challenge that I like to address at the best of my ability.

I had a request to design and create jewels matching with other designs I previously made. Most of my designs are created with a combination of gemstones, metals, leather and more natural elements. This way all my creations allow the possibility to combine and stack multiple jewels together.
I give my customers the ability to create time after time their on set. Each design is unique also when it is worn by itself.

My first request was for a pair of dangle earrings with Rose Quartz and Mother of Pearl matching with the Rose quartz heart necklace…
Half heart earrings2

The Rose Quartz heart necklace to match…

My sketch was inspired by the shape of a half heart.

I love how my design turned out, the earrings are just like I had vision them in my mind.

Earrings are Limited Edition and avaiable for sale only as Custom Order in my Etsy Shop.

 

My second custom order request will be in my next post…

Is known as the Love stone “Rose Quartz” new design…

“LOVE” – Rose Quartz is a natural gemstone known as the Love Stone…
this beautiful crystal has healing power and emits strong vibrations of unconditional love. 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, is 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.

During the past days I have been working on a new custom request for another heart pendant with Rose Quartz. I create a new one-of-a kind design, similar but different to the other necklace I made. The new pendant has a different twist you can see it here from my sketch to life….

I hope you like it as I do…
