Designing a great match…

Purple Flame Ring

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. All my creations can be combined together also if they aren’t created as sets. I like the idea to give the ability to mix and match pieces between them, or stack them together creating your own story that can be changed anytime you wear my Art.
Usually the beautiful natural gemstones I use in my designs are all a possibility of infinite combinations of colors, shapes or based on meanings that goes beyond the stones.

and create a story for each piece, based on the meanings and natural powers  that nature has.

I wrote this poem “Hands” not long ago…

Hands
Hands

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.

Soothing Fire Necklace
Soothing Fire Necklace

 During this week I have been working on several projects.
and I am happy to introduce and debut my new design a powerful necklace.
I named this necklace “Soothing Fire” and it is part of the Among Nature Jewelry Collection 2015

Soothing Fire NecklaceI 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 several 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.

Rose Quartz ring2 copy It is amazing what is possible to create with just a wire, without fire, without soldering, when I start a design most often I just get inspired by the gemstones and their shape. I let my creativity and inspiration guide my hands while manipulating the silver wire, wrapping and twisting it around the stones and be able to create beautiful jewels. I am very proud of this ring it is really beautiful on the finger, it a statement ring showcasing a faceted Rose Quartz and smoky Crystals it is one of my favourite rings I made recently for my “Among Nature Collection” I have one myself and when I wear it around I get a lots of compliments, so that alone make me proud of this wonderful piece of wearable Art.

A dark tan color leather cord is knotted and adjustable in length. This necklace it is wearable long or short  both ways it looks beautiful.

Protective energy talisman necklace
Turquoise is considered the most ancient and old gemstone in the history of mens, it emits protective energy and power, it was used from warriors for protection and courage and believed that blesses who wear it. Native Americans honored this beautiful stone as Sacred stone and believed that helps to become one with the universe.
Turquoise also emits messages and powers of wisdom, serenity, wholeness, self-expression, creativity, peace of mind, emotional balance, good luck, spiritual grounding, honest communication, friendship, love and loyalty. Absorbs negativity.
