Trees

I wanted to show off my new trivet.  It is glazed a luscious peach color and has a tree hand painted over the unfired glaze in brown, with a black outline and off white highlights.  I think it came out rather nice!!

Easter Ceramics

It's amazing what treasures you find when you go through crates.  I've had this piece for several years and always intended to list it during the Easter season.


As you can see, it depicts the figures of Mary and Jesus following the Crucifixion.  It is a slip cast piece, and is finished simply with an ecru color wash and glitter highlights.  I really love the simplicity of this piece and especially the reminder of the sacrifice made for us by Jesus.

Blessings and Peace.

New Earrings on ArtFire

I recently listed 3 new pair of earrings in JillsTreasureChest on ArtFire.  They all have one new thing in common.  I have little spirals at the bottoms of the dangling head pins.


These lovely earrings feature frosted faceted glass beads, garnet fire polished crystals, and small garnet beads dangling from a gold toned diamond shaped chandelier.


I love the silver toned chandeliers in these earrings.  They are so delicate and lightweight.  There are 2 small hematite beads included in the bottom dangles of each earring.  Note the tiny spirals on the bottoms of the dangles.


These earrings feature blue jasper beads and smoky crystal beads suspended from a silver toned double loop chandelier.

I'm always excited about including a new technique with my jewelry and hope to bring more variety to this shop, JillsTreasureChest on ArtFire.

AEbbeson

AEbbeson is owned and operated by Amy Ebbeson in Wocester, Massachusetts.  Her jewelry embraces the inner goddess, Buddhist or pagan sensibilities with bold colors, large stones, and a mixture of beads from cultures that wouldn't necessarily be found together.  She states she uses numerology, astrology, and the Law of Attraction in creating her jewelry.

This piece is reserved for someone, but since we know I am very attracted to purple, I had to show it.  It is called Clarity and features fluorite and amethyst.

This necklace is called Isis- Bold Goddess Queen    It was created from silver and turquoise with aquamarine accents.










This cinnabar and bone necklace also has lamworked beads, created by Amy.  Red and white symbolize purity and cleansing in the Buddhist culture, according to Amy.





Stop by AEbbeson for more bold and unusual jewelry!  There is sure to be something special there.

SerendipityWorld

SerendipityWorld on Etsy is owned and operated by Melissa and her family.  Melissa describes herself as a spunky mom who works at home and home schools her children.  She states that her products are used in her family, and that she is trying to show that one can have nice things without spending a lot of money!!  She focuses on candles, melts, tarts, bath and body items and charms.

These charms caught my eye not only because they are attractive, but also they are designed to help us with the Law of Attraction by giving us something positive to think about and manifest!

These charms can be used on your coffee cup, wine glass, key rings, napkin rings, zippers on purses, and more!







Since we know I like purple and the lavender scent, I want to  feature this Lavender Sea Salt Glycerin Soap.   It is available with no dye, and in a variety of scents.





February is the month for Valentine's Day, but attracting love is a positive thing any time of the year.  These Love Aromatherapy Soy Tarts are designed to work with your meditation to attract love and relationships.


Melissa states that each individual is different, and different scents may be more beneficial for an individual.  She hopes her creations will work with the Law of Attraction and meditations, but cannot make any explicit guarantees.

Stop by SerendipityWorld to see what you can find.  I think you will be pleased with her selection and the information provided about each item she sells.

KStarrImages is owned and operated by Kevin Boyes.  Kevin says he recently made a decision to commit himself full time to his art and just recently opened his shop.  His shop primarily consists of photography, and I think you'll see that he excels at this.

This piece is entitled "Purple".  And since we know I love purple, I'll start with it.  I love the way the purple looks against the plain black background.





This piece is entitled " Behold" and features a beautiful flower unfolding and a Bible verse from Psalms.






The focus on the bee and flower in this photo, entitled " Bee Happy" is amazing.  And I bet that little bee is happy with all those flowers to choose from on such a gorgeous day!!!
