i heart hearts ...

you know what ... i so wanted to do today's challenge at inspiration avenue themed "my town" ... unfortunately i live in such a sterile and boring new township there is absolutely nothing to show, unless you want to see the largest ikea in malaysia ... well, i'm 5 minutes drive away *shrug*

BUT ... you might like to take a trip down to inspiration avenue's blog and take a look at what fabulous places my friends live in *sob sob* i am sooooo jealous!!

having no town to show, i decided to settle for some hot from the oven, newly baked hearts instead! now, i'm not lying ... these were really baked like a cookie! LOL!


Enya Elvira ...

made last week but didn't get to post it here tho some of you might have seen it on my facebook. a vintage gothic choker in antique brass and black. where the focal bead is polymer clay and resin-ed, finished with a dragonfly :)

polymer clay mixed media necklaceif you have noticed, i like to name my pieces in the weirdest names! sometimes elven words, other times just names. they all have been girls so far ... i wonder if i would create a 'male' one of these days.


Athelia

" It is said that when the Age of Man begins, the elves would fade and return to the Ancient West. Athelia is inspired by the Grey Havens, the harbor where the last of the elves of Middle Earth would embark on their final journey home to Valinor..."

polymer clay mixed media necklace* can be worn long or short ... your call :)

and finally Daelithe

" Daelithe is inspired by the dawn of a new cycle, the rebirth of new energy, new growth and new hope. Daelithe is a celebration of the coming of Spring. Rejoice! "

polymer clay mixed media necklace*also can be worn long or short ...

once again, i'm swaying between dark and light ... also endings and beginnings as is evident in the latest 2 pieces i made. one speaks of the passing of a race, the other speaks of the dawn of a new beginning ...

on a different note however ... i have suddenly become quite obsessed with ocean jasper!! arghhhhh!! i basically spent a whole day oooogling at them on the net. then went straight to my bead supplier and guess what!! i managed to buy a couple of strands of ocean jaspers! hehehe ... see if you can spot them on my new pieces?

also, i've been experimenting on some new blending techniques with polymer clay as seen in the striations on daelithe. i have made a couple more beads with this technique and can't wait to form them into a piece of adornment!

and of course, i still want my blacks!!

oooo ... i am pretty excited already!!

happy pimping! :)

  9. These are SO gorgeous, I don't think I could choose a favorite because I love them all....BTW, my daughter's 16th b-day was last week and I finally gave her the dream catcher which she LOVED and hung over her bed just like Bella in New Moon. She was also enchanted that it came from so far away:)

  11. Luthien, all of these are so gorgeous, I love them all. I especially like the choker with the dragonfly though. You are so creative!

    I really wish you had entered the "my town" challenge! Nothing's more boring than my town, just ask my son! lol.

    This week's challenge might be right up your street. I haven't posted it yet, but the theme is Opposites. I thought of your Light and Dark pieces while I was writing about it...

  13. Oh Luthie...I love your hearts...the way the two halves are sewn together...each is more beautiful than the last! I will own one one day!

    I am playing catch up on my blog friends and i will post my picture tomorrow for the tag game.

    One more thing...funny you mentioned doing a male...I was just imagining the same thing. The only male painting I've ever done was my son and I was trying to imagine who I would get some male inspiration from...you know what they say about great minds :)
    Hugs sweet!
