Tarot Card Reading Meme

Great fun, and eerily factual in places...

You are The Moon

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.

The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

El Fauno

Click Thumbnails of Images to see them in Full Size

The movie Pan's Labyrinth has a special personal resonance for me, and my childhood. I love it, and am very moved by it, as millions of people have been

I decided to create a one of a kind designer piece heavily influenced by the Faun, Pan. I incorporated his horns, and turquoise blue tones, as well as trying to mimick his wide set eyes. The overall piece again, is meant to be organic, since Pan himself seems to have returned to nature, all encrusted in vines, and earth, while he hibernates awaiting the return of the princess

The piece, El Fauno, is made from sterling silver and turquoise gemstones, the wire is weaved and sculpted by hand, hope you like it

Mermaids,birthdays and Roses...

I couldn't resist photoshopping this lovely little posey sitting on my bedroom side table, so pretty....

It's my birthday this weekend coming, and a whole load of family are coming over, which should be great, I hope it'll be sunny too. I am still in the process of slowly building up stock to sell, and am pleased with my efforts so far. I'm really into organic looking jewellery, that mimicks nature, and have made this barnacle encrusted aquamarine ring, the idea being that a mermaid would wear such a piece. I am definitely living in a dream world, or an underwater world it would seem LOL

Hope you like it

Where we are at the mo....

Well at present I am still gearing up to opening the online store and I am also experimenting with lots of mixed media in my jewellery making

I am loving sculpting jewellery at the moment , it really fits with the organic feel I try to incorporate into most of what I make

Here is an example of a couple of pendants I made last month, sculpted fine silver.
One is representative of sea life and fossils, the other of woodland leaves


Hope you like them...
