Three of my latest creations were inspired by a woman whose work I have been fawning over for some time now, an incredible artist named Karen Totten. She makes the most beautiful ceramic pendants. I finally was able to purchase a set and ooh, I let out a squeal of joy when they arrived. Opening the package was like opening a present, she even put them in a pretty box with a bow! And included a little gift... which I am looking forward to playing with, for now I put it on the ribbon and am wearing it most days *happy sigh*. I love this woman! Anyway, once I got past the initial goodies and pulled out the ones I had ordered... I fell in love. This woman has the most amazing talent. They are so beautiful! Even more in person than on the listing. I had originally been planning on putting them with a lot more beads... but they were so pretty I didn't want to distract from the pendants and kept the necklaces simple and beautiful. I am rather in love with them myself :)
They look heavy, but they aren't at all. The pendants are delightfully light and the gorgeous Vintaj chain is as well. I am so happy with the results! And the last piece I did was a bracelet featuring a little ivory connector... it reminded me of a bottle cap so I did a summer soda inspired bracelet :) It is so fun!
Red agate, green jasper, rosewood rondelles.... it reminds me of orange and lime sodas :) I love it! You should go check out Karen's blog and her FB page! She's a very cool lady and I will definitely be using her beautiful ceramics again!
Alright, back to work... housework that is! Happy Friday everyone! :)
