Yay, I listed some new necklaces and earrings on Etsy and Dawanda! It does make me happy when I do, ’cause I haven’t found a rhythm to do this on a regular basis yet. I’m in awe of artists who can -for me there’s work or school that comes first inevitably, and then there’s a loooooong road from the initial idea to the final finished and listed piece of jewelry. Mostly because of practical reasons like the studio still being built up (and the house being renovated) to finding the right (natural) light to photograph and finally, health reasons too. Although I have been feeling stronger than before (touch wood!), that chronic fatigue still requires me to take things easy.
So some of the items you see here, finally finished and ready to set out into the world find their beginnings more than a year or so ago! Go figure.
This one for example, is part of the fairy tale fragments series, which I introduced back in june but only got around finishing a week or so ago. This one is all silver, fused and forged, with gemstones depicting melting ice and blossom petals (please view full size on flickr!):
emerging – etsy -and all about Persephone!
I wish I could stop restraining myself and just throw myself into creating full time, but that wouldn’t be wise in these economically challenging times…so short, bright bursts it is then…
