Victoria in a Lavender Field

Victoria at sunset in a lavender field…all she can see around her is the soft lilac carpet of the flowers. The breeze carries the delicate scent and makes her skirt and hair float. Marcel is about to come for dinner…she'd better start her way back to the house.


Oval Medallion in Aqua and Gold





Round Medallion with 3 beads





Round Earrings in Olive and Gold





How do you like the metallic pieces? I'm feeling very inclined to keep experimenting in this direction...do you agree?


Thanks for reading and sharing your comments!

A magic moment.




Working on the deck table in the late afternoon. Golden rays of sunshine around.



So peaceful...


In such good company...

Wrinkled Pearls

A million years ago I've shown my wrinkled pearls in process. They looked like constellations to me. I've put them together to create the "Cassandra in Machu Picchu" series.

To me this is jewelry that you'd take with you on an adventure and self discovery trip. Only for the brave and wild of heart :)

This is the story:

Cassandra is in Machu Picchu, sitting on a big rock and contemplating the Urubamba River flowing. She has walked for many days - Nature and silence have purified her body and soul. This necklace is her only adornment. She's beautiful and silently radiant.







And 2 more coming soon!

Random

Drying rack...soon to became new jewelry pieces...


I literally dream with metallic patina...last night in my dreams I've seen a lot of charcoal and pewter together. (I had a great time yesterday at the art store comparing silver toned acrylics :)


And my little beloved companions in life and art adventures, Theo


and Micael (who is obviously never late for his meetings)

New Necklaces in Metallic Colors




I'd like to present a few new works where I've started to apply a golden patina on top of my acrylic colors:




Eva has just had breakfast. She's standing in Karl Johans Gate with a map in her hands. A handsome man stops by her and with a strong accents says - do you need help?


And,



Lisa will go to Paris for the first time. She wants to travel light…she'll pack only a few things in her red suitcase. This necklace will be the only adornment that will accompany her. She looks so sweet in her blue dress.



Thanks for looking at my work!

Ceceu in Buzios


Ceceu in Buzions walks by the seaside picking shells and seaglass. Her bare feet feeling the warm ocean waves, the water spraying her face. Her dark hair floating around her played by the sea breeze.


Ceceu feels freedom and possibility in her heart...thinking of what she'll create with these shells just makes her happy.

Annette in Burgundy- New colors

For this set of Annette in Burgundy necklaces I wanted to explore contrasting color combinations.


The inspiration is a sweet pretty girl, in the French contryside...



writing a letter on and old wooden table...




At her side, a beautiful rusty jug full of decadent roses...





and maybe a white enamel bowl with lemons and leaves fresh from the tree.

Thanks so much to Pam from A Trendy Wedding for the great review!
