The Fantastical Realm of Goddess Adornments

An Enchanting Glimpse into my Studio and Jewelry Line

Rainbow Awakening

Ever have one of those days when just a glimmer of hope changed your whole perceptional reality? This week we had a rain spell up here in Northern California. It rained for three solid days.  One evening we noticed the color change outside and stepped out to see a vibrant glorious rainbow! Oh, springtime bliss is upon us! I could see each rainbows end anrainbowd all 5 miles of shifting color variancerainbow-awakening.  Taking a deep breath, I realized how easy it is to get caught up our life story and how a phenomena such as a rainbow can pull us back into our true selves connected with magic and transformation.

The rainbow was followed by a magnificent sunset and my inspiration was surging. Thus, these new earrings, entitled, “Rainbow Awakening” were manifested.  They are made from scratch from silver wire, hand hammered and oxidized to bring out an antiqued quality which I love. The “silver lining” is complimented by a shower of colored tourmaline, which I wire wrapped onto the frame.  In the middle I hung only the most beautiful amethyst crystals…the jewels at the end of the rainbow!

5 Ways To Ride the Waves of Inspiration

Ever hit a creative (for lack of better words)….Block??? It tends to happen from time to time and it’s okay to feel a little foggy. Although, if art is a large part of your life,  you don’t want your head in the fog so deep that the lighthouse won’t be able to steer you home!

Here are some of my favorite ways to clear my gunkies and come out crystal clear~ocean-fantasies

  • Next time your feeling Splendid!,  On Top of the World!,  Nothing can Stop you Now!, Enchanted!, Mesmorized by your influx of ideas streaming Wonderful ideas! Harness It!! And I don’t mean by staying up until 4am trying to implement them all. Simply write, scetch or get them onto something concrete, so that when you are having a down time, you can refrence your brillance and inspire even more things!
  • This one helps to be centered if your into that 🙂  basically what I like to do, is pick an aspect in nature (or maybe a country you’ve been to, or place, or even person) maybe physical or intangible.  It’s a form of meditation where you simply open your mind and allow yourself to receive.  It might take some time, it might start out as thoughts on color schemes or texture or design or materials. Both of the photo examples here on this page, “Ocean Fantasies” and “Sea of Oblivion” are  inspired by a visual meditation I did on the Sea.  Keep in mind, your viewer might not even know where you were inspired from and that has no relevance.
  • Get inspired by other peoples art! This one is so easy because art is all around us and so accessible. Even though I don’t think you would, I just have to put out there that in no way am I implying to copy someone else’s hard work and pass it off as your own original idea.  But hey, I would say 99% of artists’ fires get sparked when they see someone’s work who sea-of-oblivionthey admire. Of course, putting your own unique spin on it is what makes you an artist!
  • Learn a new trick or trade having to do with your art form or purchase a new tool or tutorial.  Perhaps your stuck-ness is a result of boredom. Upgrades are good, don’t be afraid of change!
  • And lastly, because I have lazy days too, just walk away.  I’m sure you notice the mood that sweeps over you when you are wanting to create. When that’s not there, your better off spending your time elsewhere.  And on that note…a cute little quote! “Believe in your Art, Believe in your Heart!”

Whirlwind of Beads…Recapping the Tucson Gem Show

Look at this mess!!! I am tangled up in beads, crystals, rare and beautiful metals and stones, well, I guess it isn’t such a bad place to be ~) After getting home from the Tucson gem show I was overwhelmed,  sore footed  and dry to the bone. This photo here demonstrates the aftermath of the show and what my brain looks like.  I fall asleep to the sweet images of green tourmaline trying to entice me to buy them.

Now, feeling refreshed and artsy,  beads cataloged and color coreographed I’m ready for action. I don’t think (well, I know) I have never had this many beads in my life. And all ones that I personally selected.  So exciting!!! I have already whipped up a couple really beautiful ones I’ll reveal tomorrow. mess-after-tucson
