Nest Feathers and Twine - Formally Artist's Block Studio

The things that make a house a home and the stuff that holds is all together.

Years ago I started this blog with a mindset and goals that I have found have changed direction over time. I am excited to say that this blog has a new name.....Nest Feathers and Twine. I hope you come by and visit often. Feel free to get comfortable and kick off your shoes and join me on this journey of metamorphosis.

new jewels

i have a love of large, chunky, colorful pieces. ethnic pieces. bold pieces. these things i love are all in this neckpiece.
ocean jasper briolettes, citrine capsules, green adventurine rounds, peacock and white keishi (petal) pearls, lilac fresh water pearls, smokey quartz faceted rondells,
and a large half shell that shimmers all of the above colors.

this is the hollyberry wreath neckpiece that is under construction.
this is the piece that i was given sudden inspiration to create the other night. many pieces i create are created with intention, i have been given inspiration, but beyond that i make a conscience decisions on the how's and what's, at least i would like to think. then there are pieces like this one where i feel like i am on auto pilot. to get the look i wanted i created several different combinations of wire wrapped glass leaves and fresh water pearls to give this piece its visual and tactile texture and layers. when i complete a piece like this one and look back at the process of construction i don't know how or why i made the choices i did. i am totally self taught. i know after years of teaching myself, some of what i do is just second nature, but there i times i am left in wonderment of the whole creation process.
going back and reading what i have just typed makes me sound like a nut, but it is just how it works. i am so grateful for the inspiration. oh-so-divine. i would not have it any other way. i am also grateful that i always seem to have the materials i need just when i need them.
