Fini Friday! Re-Creation and Dreamtime!

Hello Everyone! 
Welcome to Fini Friday! 
I hope your week so far has been full of joy! 
I've both re-creations and a finished creation to show you this Fini Friday! 
Let's take a look at a small gathering of early Sprite Creations of earrings! Before:
And some of the Afters... 
Title: As Yet Unknown Ingredients: Glass, metal, silver-plated surgical steel earwires.
Title: As Yet Unknown 
Ingredients: Red Tiger Eye, Citrine, Bali and Sterling Silver. 
There are more re-creations but I'm saving them for future Fini Friday viewing! 

The last creation of this post is a necklace that's been languishing for some time and is now all grown-up! 
Title: Dreamtime 
Ingredients: Glass, leather(USA), Sterling Silver.
The idea for this necklace came through the beads. The round beads with the dots of blue and yellow reminded me of the traditional Australian Aboriginal art often seen on digeridoos and bull-roarers. Legends in Australian hold that dolphins are escorts to and from Dreamtime, which is thought to be similar to Nirvana, Bliss, Heaven and so forth. Hence the connection with the leaping dolphin pendant... The hand-knotted glass in rainbow colours also are in sequence of colours most often associated with the 7 chakras of the human body. This creation is finished in sterling silver (silver is often a colour linked with intuition) and a clasp shaped as an infinity symbol. This is one of the more spiritual of my creations and I'm pleased with how it has turned out! 

That's it for this Fini Friday! 

I hope you will join me (if you're in the area) tomorrow for the Shop Local event at Monthei Fine Arts Studio
