FREE





I wish I could make a necklace like this every week, that is, one that sits so well with me, and how I feel, and just feels right. The inspiration for this came from an altered book I am working on with Lenna Andrews of CreativeLenna. She is an awesome mixed media artist, and is being ever so patient as I try to create this book of mine, with the theme, of what else, birds! Thus, the necklace came to be, from that thought of birds, and their travels over water, and land, their earthy colors., and their freedom, which I think about a lot. I can spend hours watching them, and always be fascinated.
Of all the jewelry that I make, this is me, this what I am, this is the essence of my soul, right here. This is the type of jewelry I always come back to, that always feel good. I like feeling good.

And it is so beautiful, just as you are, Sharito! I love the clasp you made for this piece! Is the long stamped pendant bead PC? I really love this kind of focal and it really is sooo you!

Sharon! The symbolism in your jewelry shines through every time. This piece is no exception. It's lovely, meaningful, earthy and natural and your beautiful you comes through. What we create needs to make us happy and I always say follow your heart and soul. We are our art! I love this! xxoo PS Thank you for your lovely comment, you left, on my Blog. One of my art goals for 2010 is to offer some online classes. I just got myself a camcorder :) It will come in handy for my art as well as capturing beautiful moments of my granddaughter who we are awaiting her arrival any time now :) Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks so much Renate, Esther, Anne, MaryJane, and Marilyn!

Yes Renate, the focal I made of polymer clay.

This looks really great! I love the 'freedom' and flow of all the charms here, especially of the white long dangle. What material is that? It looks really great.

Beautiful Sharon and so you. The focal elements work so well together and the clasp is a little work of art all by itself.

Sharon
Your necklace is perfect. No wonder this one makes you feel so good...it has a lot of different elements, a stamped message and some wire work mixed in...you're right - all of your strengths rolled in to one piece of jewelry.
