I received the Jungle Love-Picasso and Rainforest Jasper Necklace and Earrings set and it is absolutely breathtaking. This artist in my opinion is a genius. She managed to take two types of jasper and mesh them together with seed beads to make a most versatile set that can be worn with or without the large stone focal station. It is now one of my most loved jewelry sets. And after all, greenery is the color of the year. I will be making many purchases in the future from this artist. This purchase was wrapped beautifully and tied with ribbon in a beautiful box. Everything about this purchase was quite special. Thank you for making what was my birthday gift from my husband so very special!!!

About

Evocative Sculptural Bead Weaving Whimsy

My work bench is a well worn, replete with "love spots", antique desk. In its first life, it was my Grandmother Maija's writing desk. All manner of musings, memoirs, letters, and birthday cards were issued from its surface.
I feel her encouragement, inspiration and loving arms around me - all that and more goes into every piece I create ♥ Add a generous helping of beautiful nature ♥ more than a few shakes to live music ♥ daydreams galore ♥ sprinkle with twinkling eyes & friendly hugs ♥
