Your Hair, Your Choice

Your Hair, Your Choice.

I am one of those women who’ve always had long, black hair. Short hair just doesn’t work well for my hair’s texture and facial features. Although I prefer to color my hair at this stage in my life, I know eventually the gray will have to shine through – and I’ll be okay with that when I’m ready. I’m guessing that’ll probably be around age 90!

Talking about Photography….

very often I got asked about my jewelry photographs, what inspire me to showcase my creations the way I do.  As you can see from some of the photos posted from the beginning on this Blog  I love photography! Yes I really do!  I love that you can catch the moment and it will stay forever with a beautiful photo.  That alone it is very inspiring to me. Awakening  that instinctive creativity guided from my inner soul to get the perfect shot. I consider photography another great Artistic Expression and I love to use some photos for my Digital Art. In Photography I am an “Amateur” if I can say that 🙂 ❤
I love to stage and take all the photos for my Jewelry Design as you can see them in the gallery Jewelry Portfolio each photo is inspired…

Once upon a time a beautiful little girl started to learn how to drawing hearts…

her hearts were so lovely and unique, they had a nice shape and a happy swirl tail on the bottom giving the hearts a sense of character and uniqueness. This adorable little girl was about 4 years old when she started drawing hearts using pens, pencils, markers and watercolors making beautiful little paintings. She has been drawing hearts everywhere in any way and kind. Time has passed and as today 7 years later she still drawing the same adorable hearts.

Watercolors

I hope to visit one day.

Venezia - Italy


I was organizing some of my watercolors and I came across this painting I made two years ago. It is a view of Venice in Italy just painted out of my visual memory. I love to paint water, there is something about water that it is so inspiring to me in many ways, artistically and not. I like the reflections and the colors. I base my palette on the beautiful range of colors of the sea, or lakes and the reflection of the sky in it.  Thematically when I paint my artwork range from seascapes, landscapes, still life, abstract and whatever inspire me...

Rose Quartz ring2 copy It is amazing what is possible to create with just a wire, without fire, without soldering, when I start a design most often I just get inspired by the gemstones and their shape. I let my creativity and inspiration guide my hands while manipulating the silver wire, wrapping and twisting it around the stones and be able to create beautiful jewels. I am very proud of this ring it is really beautiful on the finger, it a statement ring showcasing a faceted Rose Quartz and smoky Crystals it is one of my favourite rings I made recently for my “Among Nature Collection” I have one myself and when I wear it around I get a lots of compliments, so that alone make me proud of this wonderful piece of wearable Art.

The Pisgah Grande 1936

SKU-000681266

The Pisgah Grande 1936Wendy Varble : Archway Publishing.

In 1936, three boys experience a terrifying encounter while camping in a deserted ghost town, resulting in unexpected consequences echoing far beyond the abandoned walls of Pisgah Grande.

While camping deep in the heart of Las Llajas Canyon on Halloween night, 1936, eight-year-old Johnny and two friends, teenage brothers Orville and Skinny, set out to explore a small, abandoned village in the Santa Susana Mountains called the Pisgah Grande. But as night falls, the boys experience a terrifying encounter in the ghost town that suddenly transforms their exciting adventure into a dark mystery that begs to be solved.

As the days pass, marked by the harsh reality of Depression-era life, Johnny assumes the role of amateur detective as he struggles to unravel the mystery, with or without his friends’ assistance. Skinny is too terrified to help. As usual, Orville is ambivalent. Johnny’s sister is too busy dealing with her own problems. But it is Johnny’s friend, Ernie, seemingly simpleminded and mute, who may be more astute and observant than anyone in their small community ever imagined. As the puzzle slowly comes together, however, Johnny begins to suspect that a missing piece is right under his nose.

In this exciting young adult thriller, a series of events spirals out of control as a boy and his friends unwittingly become entangled in an adult world filled with secrets, confusion, and deceit.
