Creating, Creating and still more creating

This week I have been a busy lady, creating things for the shop and for fun.

I started the week working with the relatively new-to-me medium of watercolor. I did a few small successful paintings of various deities including Lugh, the Green Man and Ganesha:



I also did a small painting of Iris, but upon completion realized I had made her head disproportionately large and her body a bit too squat. I plan to give her another try soon enough.

I've also been working on some pendulums. I've made them in the past and I always have a great time picking stones and putting them together. I've done everything from double ended quartz pendulums on leather cord to sea glass on hemp, but this time I decided I wanted to use a vintage necklace and stones:



I'm really happy with all of them, but I have to say the petrified wood pendulum above is my favorite of the bunch.

I'm ending my week by beginning a project that I'm really excited about. It all started with small wooden boxes and my love for all things gypsy. If I could live in a brightly coloured wagon and roam the country telling fortunes for the rest of my life, I would. But I digress. The sparks of inspiration led me to create a trio of soul sisters whose stories will be told when the project is complete. For now, I'll leave you with a peek at the gypsy sisters:


Gypsy Sister Sky
Gypsy Sister Earth
Gypsy Sister Sea

Have a beautiful weekend, loves.
