NEW PATHS






A new piece I made to take to the shop next weekend, but I think it may be a keeper. I ordered this heart in hand from Spirited Earth's shop, and it was love at first site. I paired it up with one off my new etchings, and some of my favorite "stashed " beads. The necklace represents stages to me, of darkness, struggle, understanding, faith, and light.

(there are wonderful beads in here also by LeAnn of Summers Studio, Gaea of Gaeas Beads, and polymer clay by Doreen of Backyard Beads)

Thank you for stopping by and visiting.

Good wishes for the weekend my friends!

Hi Sharon that is a really lovely Necklace! I recognised some of the Artisans right away like Nans and Gaeas. I need to look into Summers Studio pcs and Doreens beads! I dont know about you but I always have a hard time parting with jewellery that Ive made and love!

Sharon, such beauty in this piece. I have not seen your etched pieces with words, i don't think and they are truly amazing. I was wearing a piece you made yesterday (green stone, wire wrapped pearl) and as always it feels uplifting with it's beauty and yet comforting in it's workmanship (made with love). xo lenna

The colors are just great, congratulations. I am painting through synesthesia which makes me see colors when I hear names and numbers. These colors I transform in paintings. Colors are my life.
