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

They are not the kind of sketches made in 20 minutes.  The result and outcome of my intense work is a lovely creation. My character ©Ylia, that was born on October 1st 2016. I developed Ylia drawing after drawing while following the official 2016 InkTober  prompt list. Each drawing illustrate a story based on the daily prompt words. I also wrote  my own “Quotes” I wanted to turn each drawing in a positive message to share with the world. I want to thank everyone that followed this challenge and shared my journey. Thank you so much for all messages and the kind words of encouragement that I received every day, that was a huge help to keep me going! I have been receiving emails asking if after the Inktober my drawings would be available for sale. I then decided for now to launch this 1st exclusive Collectors Release of Fine Art Prints.

Today November 5, 2016  ©YLIA ADVENTURES  Fine Art Prints are available in  Limited Edition!

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.

Love and Peace - Design ©Carolina Russo

Love and Peace – Design ©Carolina Russo

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

A little girl drawing hearts…and a jewel…

Once upon a time…a beautiful little girl was learning how drawing hearts…

her hearts were so lovely and unique in shape ending with a happy swirl a detail that was giving the hearts a sense of character and uniqueness. This adorable little girl was about 4 years old when she started drawing hearts using pens, pencils, markers and watercolors making beautiful little paintings. She has been drawing her beautiful and recognizable hearts everywhere, in any ways and kinds. Time has passed and until today 7 years later, she still drawing the same adorable hearts. The little girl is grown in a beautiful teen she is 11 almost 12 years old right now, and I am her proud Mom. I always loved her beautiful hearts dedicated to me in her lovely cards year after year. I have been fascinated by her drawings at the point that I wanted to do something special. She  inspired me to create a beautiful pendant and make it into a necklace that I named “Neriah’s Heart”

Neriah's heart5a sketches

Neriah is my daughter name, and this new heart pendant is our new design, something we share together, it has a very special meaning to me. I love how it turned out that I want to share it with the world.
This necklace would be part of my  “Among Nature” Collection  it would be only produced as Custom Order and in Limited Edition for whom is interested, it can be purchased here or on my Etsy Shop.

Neriah's heart1a

This pendant is made out of 925 Sterling Silver wire or there is the option to be made with other metals like Copper or Silver plated copper. The natural gemstones I choose are Rose Quartz, Blue Quartz and Crystals, I like their meanings and powers combined together:

CALMING & HARMONIOUS

Blue Quartz purifies the mental, emotional and physical bodies. It helps calm the mind, allowing expression of the individuals will and assists in reaching out to others. It stimulates intuitive insight and enhances communication and creative expression.

LOVE AND PEACE
Rose Quartz promotes unconditional love, forgiveness, infinite peace and compassion. It creates harmony in relationships and teaches us about the true essence of love. It purifies and opens up the heart allowing us to express our emotions. It reduces stress and tension, allowing us to express love, sensitivity and compassion towards ourselves and others. Rose Quartz brings a deep inner healing, enhancing self love, self trust, self worth and self confidence. It can be used to attract love into your life and maintain happy loving relationships.

Gemstones can be changed on custom orders.

Neriah's heart4a
The necklace feature an adjustable leather cord. I will design different version of this necklace near soon…
I hope that you enjoyed the story of “Neriah’s heart” as I did on sharing it with all of you.

Have a wonderful day and please leave your comment I love to hear from you!

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…
rose quartz heart#2c

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

Half heart earrings1a

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…
