3 in 1: Spring Necklace, a Bracelet & a Cuff

 

 


Deep through a thick forest, there is a dirt winding road that ends up at an open green valley embroidered with colorful wild flowers. 

The air is laden with invigorating fragrances and the silence is decorated by the nature's unique orchestra composed of buzzing bees and insects and the chirping and singing of birds.  There you find me taking all these in, soaking them up. 

I love taking long walks in nature, exploring and discovering with all my senses wide open and finally I take photos, fearing that these images might fade out in time. 

When searching for inspiration for my work, I invoke images similar to the opening one of this post, which was used to create this.

I am happy to show you my newest piece - a necklace which turns into a bracelet and a cuff. 




The tube necklace turns into a bracelet, but I didn't take a picture of it for this post. I am planning a video with Eva as to show you how it transforms.

I am working on several more in different colors and cannot wait to show them all!

You really outdid yourself with this piece, Maya! I love the embroidered vines on the necklace. Looking forward to see Eva wearing these in the video!

Thank you Alhana. We just learned that Saturday is a work day (I hate when they do that) so we work tomorrow and chances are null that we'll be able to make a video, so that too, has to be postponed. Sadly..

You have indeed soaked up the glorious sounds, sights and smells of your beautiful forest, Maya, with these beautiful pretties. I can only imagine the beauty of the forest in which you walk and the inspiration it gifts you. A gorgeous necklace and the cuff.....how very sweet. The crochet floral pretties truly adorn these pieces beautifully.
