ESTHER'S SWEET SONG




click on the photos to see the detail

This one is for moi!! Esther will be so proud of my French! hehe!! Esther of Mes Illusions Baroques.....my dear friend and kindred spirit, sent me this gorgeous pendant in an exchange a while ago, and I knew I wanted to do something special with it, for moi!! She also sent me the musical link connectors...they are so original and gorgeous!! I have to say to all my jewelry friends that Esther blows me away . She is super talented, and her exuberance pours out into everthing she makes. She not only makes jewelry, but most of the time makes all of the components. She makes art, mixed media, pendants, resin, felt, charms, wirework, solder, waxing, and I think EVERYTHING! The little black and white tag at the top of the necklace she also made.....it is a little charm to put on my pieces for when I sell them, and my name is on the other side , which you will see in other posts this week. So all I did was add the bird's nest I made out of steel , and some turquoise rice beads, amber chips, and some home made chain. I reeeeeallly love this necklace, because it represents to me the flight of love from one friend in one country to another, the lyrical components are the sweet song of the bird, (and us gabbing through email all the time!) and the nest and the links are the building of a relationsip of two people so far away from each other, yet so close. Kisssssss Kiiiiiiiiissss Esther!! This one's for you!!

Sharon I am so blown away by the beauty of this piece! What a gorgeous surprise to find this today on your blog (although I'm a little late visiting here). I agree with everything you said about Esther...she is incredibly talented. Her skills just seem limitless, as I am reminded yet again in the great components that she sent you. I love how you tied everything together in tribute to your friendship. :-)v
