Welcome to Fini Friday!
I hope your week has been grand so far!
This post will be a bit shorter than usual as I'm making the final preparations for my first show of 2013! Yes! In spite of the snow, we intend to be at the 10th Annual Burst Into Spring event in Cambridge, MN (USA)!
I had so much fun creating earrings with the Honey Bee Mood beads you saw on Wednesday, I decided to create one more pair! Here they are!
Title: The Sweetness of Life
Ingredients: Honey Bee Mood beads, Czech glass, lead-free pewter(USA), metal, silver-plated surgical steel earwires.
I'm so pleased with what these grew into! I love the bit of sunny yellow that shines through those gorgeous dark teal flowers! And it's neat that the illusion of the Bee drinking from the flower is made! YAY!
This second creation is an earring and necklace ensemble. The ceramic links and pendant are hand-crafted by Melanie of Earthenwood Studio. They've been languishing around the studio for quite a while and I'm thrilled that they've grown into completion!
I adopted the two round links and Passion pendant together because they evoked a sense of weaving Passion into life in the style an Old World (or perhaps Fairy World!) tapestry. I also love the idea of Passion growing!
Let's start with the entire ensemble: Title: Passion Grows Ingredients: Earthenwood Studio ceramic links and pendant, artisan glass, lead-free pewter(USA and other), metal, surgical steel (silver-plated) earwires (earrings), steel cable neckwire (necklace).
And the focal of the necklace! I adore the accent of matte black leaves that form a sensuous fringe around the generous slices of fiery artisan glass! What a luxurious feel!
Our last photo is of those fabulous earrings! I've always found keys mysterious and intriguing and love the idea of giving people the key to their own locks. I thought it was fitting to use a heart-shaped lock, since what is Passion without Heart? More of those matte black leaves add an organic flow!
These creations (and more!) will be available for adoption at my first show of 2013!
It is in Cambridge, MN, USA and details are here!
It would be grand to see you there!
In the meantime, I'll see you tomorrow or Monday!
