This week’s topic over at Inspire Me Thursday is Handmade Gifts. Perfect for this time of year!
My contribution is these wearable art pendants I have just listed on Etsy. I think they would make wonderful Christmas gifts:
And if you’re looking for a beautiful jewellery box to give the pendant in, one of my keepsake boxes would be perfect! This picture really doesn’t do them justice – they look much nicer in real life.
I have ordered a new shipment of boxes which I’m told will arrive before Christmas. Some styles of the boxes actually sold out last time before I even picked the order up from the post office. So if you’re interested in a particular style, please let me know asap and I’ll put one aside for you!
These are the designs coming in the next order – if there’s another painting you’d like to see on a keepsake box, let me know and I’ll put it in the next order:
One last thing – I’ll be drawing the winner of the giveaway later today – so if you’re interested in entering, please do so soon!
I know it’s not quite Friday yet, but I thought I’d post my Friday Favourites now as I don’t know if I’ll get a chance tomorrow.
This week’s selection is inspired by this painting:
It’s actually stinking hot here right now, so I’m a little envious of my northern-hemisphere friends and their white winters 🙂 To get me into a cooler frame of mind, I’m featuring beautiful items in blue, white and silver.
First up this week is this sterling silver necklace with interchangeable amazonite and pearl pendants, by Emily Wiser Jewellery. I love that you can wear just the white or just the blue pendant, but I think they look great together.
You may have noticed that I am very taken with swirls, and they feature heavily in my artwork. Bearing that in mind, I’m sure it isn’t difficult to guess what caught my eye about this beautiful necklace, titled “Romantic Getaway” by Beach Glass Gone Wild!
The next blue and white beauty on my list is this gorgeous vintage vanity fair robe in periwinkle blue, from Fine Vintage Apparel. It’s just too pretty for words!
This Silver Snowflake necklace from Inbal Jewelry and Design is just lovely. It would make a lovely addition to a winter outfit, but I think it is so pretty I’d wear it all year round.
Last, but most definitely not least, is this stunning card featuring artwork titled “Buckwheat Branches” by IsabellaFlora. The card is blank inside so it could be given for any occasion – it’s just beautiful!
Well, it’s been a hectic week, but I’ve finally gotten around to putting up something for this week’s Inspire Me Thursday. I was lucky this week in that the topic fitted in well with something I had to do anyway – make labels for the wearable art pendants I was finishing for a custom order.
These labels are made with prints of my watercolour artworks. They feature the name of the pendant (each pendant is titled and signed on the back) and state that the pendant is handpainted (makes a nice touch when giving the pendants as a gift).
I hope the recipient likes them!
In other news, I am thrilled that my Silver White Winter painting was chosen for Timothy Adam Designs’ Etsy Top 10! Check it out – the other items in the Top 10 are well worth looking at as well.
This weekend I’ve been working hard on a new venture – wearable art.
I’ve made a few pendants already. Each one features an individually painted work of art.
If you’d like to purchase any of these pendants, they are available at my etsy store.
I’ll be making more of this type of pendant, so stay tuned!
