I have already started my Earth Day Collection with some simple hammered rings and Wood Kanji Earrings
but I came across these lampwork and ceramic handcrafted beads and drooled! These would make great additions to the Earth Element (glass & clay) of the collection. Every piece in the collection represents one of Earth many elements somehow- Fire-Metal-Water-Air-Earth-Wood.
I also bought some glass beads for bracelets
I haven't figured out how I am going to incorporate Air and Water...I'll think of something;-)..Fire is actually represented as a neccessary element to form and shape Wood & Metal &Earth( i.e heat patina, kiln heat and drilling/laser)
Water is represented through Sea glass through ocean tumbling and the hydration process.
Plus I love these Periwinkle Pillow Boxes made with plantable recycled paper. Created by Mariposa Paper Arts . I package all my small pieces in these boxes.
Thank for visiting;-)
