Lack of time today I am going  to share this older post about my jewelry designs. I wrote this post last November when I was lucky to meet in person some amazing Bloggers friends! ❤


– Point Dume –

Point Dume is a promontory on the coast of Malibu, California that juts out into the Pacific Ocean. The point, a long bluff, forms the northern end of the Santa Monica Bay. Wikipedia

I designed this necklace for my friend blogger and published author  Erika Kind as token of our friendship. If you followed our recent posts you know that we met (read my post) in person last November here in California it was a great experience. Each piece of Jewelry I design has a story behind it. This one symbolize the beginning of our friendship relate to one of our first conversations that we had when we met, and it was about how much Erika love California, the Ocean and the Beach she said that she love “Point Dume” which happen to be a wonderful place in Malibu where I go often and I love to take beautiful photos like this one of the beach where Point Dume promontory is. This is one of the places where I find precious natural elements like fragments of fossil seashells, stones, driftwood all elements gifted from nature that I treasure and collect for my unique jewelry designs.

The necklace created for Erika has all the elements to symbolize what she love, it represent the Ocean with the natural beauty of a fragment of a Fossil Seashell,  a Pearl and her favorite Turquoise stone, the blue color of the stone symbolize the sky and the ocean  water,  all the elements are wired together creating a keepsake memories pendant with an adjustable leather cord. This is an example of the concept I work with, to create one of a kind Jewelry. I am very happy that Erika love the necklace very much at the point that when I gave to her she got emotional, that was my greatest gift to see the reaction she had it means I made it through her heart giving her happiness and joy…this is one of the reason why I love my work!

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.

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”

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…

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…

One of a kind

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….
