I have been asked several times about how I feel about parting with my beautiful beads, a lot of people couldn´t even imagine to let them go if they would have been the artist.
I am happy making beads and jewelry, I am getting great personal pleasure out of doing what I do but once finished the purpose is to bring joy to someone else. My attention goes immediatly to the next piece focusing on new ideas etc. etc. etc.
It makes me happy to make art as a gift not only to me but a gift through me to others.
I have of course favorites, but there have been only a few ones (3 exactly) that I couldn´t part with and this necklace is one of them. I have it now since 2008 when it was finished and I felt immediately in love with it. It is made from the first silver glass rods that have been made by Double Helix Glassworks and I have combined them with a lot of palladium and fine silver - all handmade by me of course. There was a big amount of work but the finished piece was worth the wait.
"If you love something you have to set it free" .... isn´t it?
I feel now that I can let it go, I hope that it will get a great home ♥, I will put it for sale into my ETSY shop.
I had a hard time taking pics the last days, I have found out yesterday that a day light bulb was burned but still not very happy with the pics. I have photographed again the bracelet from yesterday, not a great pic but better than that from yesterday LO.
And as always, you can find all these beauties HERE in my Shop
