Words are so important.  Focusing on a word that is meaningful to you can act as a gentle reminder to keeping your thoughts on what is important, or a change you are hoping to make in your perspective.

I am adding some literary jewelry to my designs!  This 221b bracelet pays homage to everyone’s favorite sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, who resides at that address on Baker Street in London.

The BBC’s latest incarnation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s ingenious Sherlock is  brilliantly played by Benedict Cumberbatch.    Martin Freeman, is his unpretentious companion, Dr. John Watson. The two have a lovely chemistry and are delightful to watch!

It’s so important to count our Blessings.  This lovely new bracelet will remind you to do just that!

objects of devotion blessed bracelet

I started with a piece of copper pipe which I magically transformed into the base of this bracelet.  I added a beautiful patina to the back, giving it a vintage look.  “Blessed” on a pale greenish blue background, adorns the front.  Gorgeous frayed ivory recycled sari silk ribbons and hand-aged, hand-forged copper clasps enhance the old world feel of this treasure.

New Year Treasures

January 17, 2013

I have added some lovely new bracelets to my etsy shop.

They are an embellished version of a design I created last year using copper pipe and silk ribbons.

Each one is adorned with a word on which to focus.

It’s a perfect reminder of a resolution, an intention or perhaps a prayer.

Pretty pastel jewels and hand-aged copper wire surround each one.

You may find these treasures in my etsy shop, Objects of Devotion.

I wish you all a very Happy New Year!

This has to be one of my favorite necklaces I’ve ever made.  The Sacred Heart image of Mary is breathtaking.

I’m still adorning my new found love, copper!  The variation of colors I can create with it are so beautiful.  I love how it looks with the greens and golds in this necklace.

On the reverse of the pendant is an ethereal script of Holy words.

I have hand forged all the copper pieces and all the lovely gems are hand wired together.  They include, Citrine, Fluorite, AA Moonstone, Moss Aquamarine and Tourmaline.  Gorgeous!

Dangling gracefully from moss green silk is an old French Crucifix with a curious bend.  I think it adds an interesting bit of character to this treasure.

The Beloved Necklace is available in my etsy shop, Objects of Devotion.

Lately, I have been busy working on developing some new techniques to use in my jewelry!

I’ve started using copper in my designs.  I love the rich colors and the variations of patina I can create with it!

In this lovely bracelet I used a gorgeous beautiful image of Mary and the Infant Jesus.

Shades of purple contrast beautifully with the subtle tones of the Holy image and the aged copper.

A pretty selection of gems which include Amethyst, Fluorite and Moss Amethyst are hand wired together with patina’d copper.  Beautifully worn, vintage rosary beads and lush silk ribbon add an old world feel.  A hand forged copper clasp completes this treasure.

The reverse is just as enchanting, with an ethereal script of Divine words.

The reverse of the charm has “Believe” written on aged Parchment.
