Another joy of recognition

I while ago one of my necklaces "Dreaming seahorse" got into selection of best works. As of today one of my favorite suppliers has pronounced my last necklace "Flowers of Winterfell" as best work of the week.

I am so proud of my work :)

Flowers of Winterfell

Something to rest my eyes and mind after finishing my B.O.T.B'15 piece (yes, it is finished already and photos just need small editing and will be off).

June challenge at fellow ETSY beadweavers team was pronounced and theme was chosen by my fellow member and friend Edita. This time we all needed to look for the inspiration at "The Game of Thrones" TV series.

I must admit that imagination runs wild, and I had dozen ideas for the different creations, but when I calmed myself down - I thought about the Winterfell and Stark women. Beautiful and fragile as flowers, but also hard strugling for their survival and never giving up. Just as fragile flower blossoms in cold north winds, that bloom and give a ray of joy.

Flowers of Winterfell. (and yes, that is me :) )

 and a bit fun on the side, with my little precious helper and inspiration.

 Cheers to all.
As always you can find this necklace at my Etsy shop.

Grateful dead

Oh hi, to everyone that reads this and occasionally visits my blog.
There has not been much happening recent days - except of my work on BOTB entry, that consumes all my space time. But still understandably sometimes I just get tired of the same piece that I have been seeing ... seems like ages...
And sometimes I just need to rest my eyes and look for some other inspiration, and maybe do something else.

This time while surfing the waves of the almighty internet, I came across the photos, that became my inspiration. So I search my bead supply stash and went out of my comfort zone and made something different.

The inspiration came from the festivals in Latino America and the cult related to Santa Muerta (saint Death) that supposedly is the patron of poor and all the criminals. Why? Because she treats everyone the same. She visits anyone. Anyway I do not want to be creepy, but the cult seemed interesting (I saw some of the documentaries and read some articles on that earlier) and now I saw some professional photo shooting portraits on this theme. And got inspired. The result is to your judging.

Boho bracelet Grateful Dead.

And as always you can read more and find this item in my Etsy Shop.

Farewell to some of my works

Good news for me, while I am busy with my BOTB15 work - that I cannot show yet, due to the rules of participation, - and while some works lay unfinished aside my Etsy shop is slowly moving and some works got sold last night.

I say farewell to 2 of my bellowed ones:

Dreaming seahorses

and Baltica

Both of them are leaving to the same new home in US, I really hope that the new owner will enjoy them to the fullest.
