The Fantastical Realm of Goddess Adornments

An Enchanting Glimpse into my Studio and Jewelry Line

Passage to India

passage-to-india

I was so deep in trance when creating this piece that I believe I created some sort of portal to India.  I saw visions of bubbly rooftops outlined with exotic sunsets. Rich colors and busseling  streets.  I don’t pre-plan whapassage-to-indiat will happen when I do wire work, the shapes just organically happen and the nature of the stones make them all unique. However, in the case of this pendent, the moment I saw the rounded temple shape, I knew the theme would be India and the rest was inspired.  I won’t go into detail about how long it took me to make (okay all day), but I will say that they started out as earrings, and I thought yeah right I’m not going to make another one…I’m gonna go make some curry!!!

P.S.  Turquoise is said to be Good Luck to Travelers!!

Spiraling into Suductive Pendents

In recent days I have decided to expand on a new jewelry idea (or at least new for Goddess Adornments). It is…making pendents!!! Thus far, I have always been attracted to complete the full necklace all thespiral-seduction way to the clasp. Which I will still be doing when the moment is right.

I have realized what a great adventure it is to make just the pendent. Not only can I put more time and energy into a smaller section, but I love all of the illusionary benefits of working with wire.  Of course, all of my pendents are made with sterling wire, oxidized and hand polished to bring out the detail in the wire work.

Today I ordered a bunch of hand dyed silk ribbon in beautiful colors to be placed with the pendents (I’ll show you a pick when they arrive).  In addition to ribbon I will also be offering a selection of chain or leather cord. Look for such options in my etsy shop within the next couple of weeks.  You will also notice within my shop a new section “seductive pendents” where you will see the pendents being added as they are made. Here is one to kick off this new phase rightly entitled  “Spiral Seduction” Click HERE to read more about this pendent. spiral-seduction

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!

And my Tribal Kick Continues….

Thought I’d throw out there another recent creation from my current tribal fascination. I’m really lovin’ the intricate unique beauty of tribal beads, usually coming with an ethnic flare of color. I would say tribal style is a fashion that speaks earthly volumes and reminds us that we are all connected…reaching out across the oceans to each other through food, music, fashion and so much more. Something as simple as an earring can remind me of these blessings, that all of us can share in worldy wonders. I made these two earrigns elegantly simple and versitle so they can be enjoyed and worn anywheretribal-stomp! They are currently highlighted featured earrings at my storefront www.goddessadornments.etsy.com!
