Wave

We all can be story tellers in many ways, as an artist I love to tell stories creating my watercolor paintings or through my designs, jewelry creations  and photography.

The ocean it is a wonderful place where I love to be, often I am lucky to find beautiful nature pieces to use for my Jewelry designs.

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.

These beautiful Sunsets also inspired me to write a poem:

Overwhelming Beauty

The sunset light was approaching
the soft curved hills.
Evening was entering like a fierce painting
in the sky.

How amazing colors
in a new dimension that only
nature and someone above
has the power to create.

I felt that overwhelming presence
a strange feeling surrounded me,
all over like holding me
in a tight and breathtaking embrace

excitement and power for
something that I see unbelievable unreal
but truly real.

I am glad I was there
grabbing the drops of this
overwhelming beauty.

-CR

Wish you all a great weekend!

Thank You!
Thank You!

Look Up! – Daily Post Photo Challenge

Peaceful Sunset

This week the  Photo Challenge at The Daily Post is “Look Up” it’s all about spending some time during your day to look up and see what there is above you!

On the Daily Post I found these words to be very true in our busy daily life “Going about our day, we often don’t pay attention to what’s directly above us. We’re more likely to focus on what’s in front of us rather than what’s overhead”.

I am an artist and I love to look at the sky, the movement of the clouds, the changing lights and amazing colors during the day until the sunset. If you paint then you know that you will never look at the sky the same way you did before. During my day I always spend few minutes looking up! I find it to be very calming and I get great inspirations for my paintings and photography!

My Photo was taken during a hike and at sunset I was overwhelmed from such beauty all over above me!

Wish you all a great week!

Thank You!
Thank You!

“WHEN NATURE MEETS HUMANS” Digital Portraits Collection
– Portrait #3 – Silver Wave –

 

This post also is my participation of the Weekly Daily Post Photo Challenge – FACE –

Today is time for another digital creation that I want to share with you, it’s a Portrait added to this Concept-Collection. This is Portrait #3 Silver Wave.
This is  a black and white portrait created with black and white photos only for a monochrome effect, focusing on lighting and transparency. While editing and creating this portrait I was able to archive a magical golden lighting effect giving beautiful shades,  it is lovely how it turned out I am very pleased and happy with it. This was a great experiment to work on.

I like to continually evolve with my Art and creativity which I love to express with different mediums. From years I love to work in Digital finding new ways of visualize and learn while experimenting. I like to work with photos, manipulating images of any kind. I often post my Digital Art .  I made a new gallery for the  “When Nature Meets Humans Portraits Collection” you can see and read all about this great concept  here. When I am not working on my Jewelry Designs, and when I am not holding a pencil or a brush watercolor painting or sketching, I love to go Digital is an extension of my art which I love to work with very much and in this case Photoshop is my creative ally. I am using Photoshop from about 15 years, for me there are not other software to really compare with, I am so amazed all the time of what I am able to create with it that motivate and inspire me to create and experiment more and more.

I am very excited and inspired to keep working on this concept created as an experimental and evolving Collection of Artistic and one of a kind Digital Portraits this is also part of my personal creative and artistic growth and evolution. Thanks to all of you for leaving me your feedbacks and comments let me know what you think. I really appreciate all the encouragements and insights. This portrait it is the #3 of this Digital Art Collection, so far by now I created six  portraits.

The story for this one starts with the title I gave  “Silver Wave” because the reflection of the water combined with the light and the grays and white tones. I also feel that the portrait emits messages of peace and calm feelings and strength at the same time, it represent the image of a strong woman who is illuminated by rays of kindness and love with a sense of inner peace, purity and happiness.

To create this portrait I used only two beautiful and amazing photos found over internet source Pinterest  note that the images used are not my own Photography (I apologize but haven’t found any names of the photographers to give Credits for their ©Copyrights).

I came up with this idea to mix nature with humans and create a unique and very different kind of portraits…let’s say very unusual portraits that tell a story, each one I created has their own story and meanings, they are filled with all my experience, art and soul into it.

If you’re interested in purchase a custom and unique portrait like this one using your own personal photos, I can create your personal and unique story with a custom Digital Art Portrait, for more info and details please contact me.

As always thank you I love to know your opinion and I appreciate your feedback!
