Silver and Aquamarine Sea glass Earrings

  • May 12, 2012 12:31 AM

 

I do not know what made me pick up these blue pieces of beach glass and decide to make earrings of them. Perhaps it is the blue sky these Spring days or maybe the sea, which I watch every day of the year, on my way to my handmade jewelry studio. Anyway – the result of watching the sea and the clear skies inspired me to handcraft these light blue earrings. Two pieces of glass which the sea, in collaboration with the winds and the salt, have turned into free formed beauties.

I set them in sterling silver bezels ,added ear wires and let them speak for themselves:

 

Tomorrow morning I shall be off to the beach again, to see what the shore has to offer me again!

Saturday Inspirations

  • May 8, 2012 8:30 AM

I woke up Saturday morning with a great positive attitude,I opened my living room window to let my cat Mazzie out to the small balcony I have fixed for her, so she enjoys the sun, the air, catching a few flies, and making these funny sounds whenever a bird passes by. Then I looked a my window box not very far away from her, and was please to see that my herbs – mint, Sage and Verbena, were doing fine in the Spring weather. Then I knew! I will handcraft a spontaneous necklace with leaves and Aquamarine beach glass! And so I did:

In the winter all my herbs looked wilted and lifeless. Mazzie is ready for her phtograph!

Saturday they looked like this:

Spring - Sage,Mint and Verbena in my Window box.

 

Saturday long, I sat at my work table, listening to my favorite music, and in the evening the spontaneous necklace was ready:
