Satisfy Your Heart

I’ve always had a desire to make stuff by hand. I thoroughly enjoy every process of developing a concept through photographing product vignettes. These are a few of my treasured images. The beaded photos are from when I was around 14 years old. It is very satisfying to look at old photos and remember just how far I’ve come, and feel blessed to be able to satisfy my heart, and create.

Inspiration Therapy

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Inspiration.”

Inspiration to create can come from where I feel balance. Balance in a color scheme I’m working on, or even in that feeling of accomplishment. Completing a challenging day at work, then returning home to receive a big hug from my husband where he meets me at the doorway, every day. And of course, the colors of the light, softly painted into an amazing summer sunset at the Northport Marina.

What inspires you?
Thanks for reading! YOU are awesome! Bye for now,

The Colors of Sunset and Wine

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Close Up.”

Color is important to me. Before designing a jewelry piece, I combine shades and textures that I’m drawn to. The Swarovski Crystal beads have amazing light reflecting qualities, and this color, Antique Rose, it very close tho the Pantone color, Marsala. The bands of color on the agate slice that I hand-picked for this piece, blend well with the crystal beads. This is an amazing close up! The finished piece can be viewed here in my Etsy shop where I added fancy caps to warm, golden jasper beads.

Photography Class – Day Eight

Theme: Natural World & Leading Lines.
A good photographer is a constant observer: always watching and studying a scene, from patterns in city traffic to movements in nature. A photographer notices big, sweeping changes — like the sky at dusk — but also the tiniest details.

Beautiful fuchsia colors drew me to these flowers with the little yellow centers as they leaned toward the light. There was a little wind movement through the flowers so I waited for the perfect moment. I framed up my shot with a close up and leading lines to the distant flowers — and the chair in the distance — a sunny place in the sun overlooking the yard to the lake.

Thanks for reading! See you tomorrow…

Just the Beginning

Certain things catch your eye, but pursue only those that capture the heart.
– Ancient Indian Proverb

Starting something new is not always easy, like blogging, a new workout routine, drinking aloe with ginger in the morning, you get the picture. I am happy to say, I started working with new materials that will ensure that my jewelry is more durable than ever, and solve the problem of short-term vs long-term. It’s a time consuming and very detail oriented process to control a tiny knot between each bead or bead section. So, I’ll be sharing some tips in later posts about my process and the glamorous gemstones that captured my heart! — Off now to drink that aloe juice. ❤
