Forevermore by luthien27
Forevermore

A custom made ring box to the theme of White and Pure with a touch of Fantasy was the request from a wonderful young man for his beautiful lady. Through several emails back and forth complete with images showing me what he had planned for his lady, I felt the sincerity, love and excitement exude from this young man as he spoke fondly of her.

It was an absolute pleasure creating this piece for them and I wish them both together forevermore in their new and exciting journey as one ...

Dear John by luthien27
Dear John

More than kisses, letters mingle souls.” ~ John Donne

Today, our letters are read through a lighted screen and our 'writing' is made by tapping our fingers on tiny little square tiles with an alphabet on them. That is why I am ever more fascinated by real letters, written with a pen on paper … especially those from a long time ago. What it must have felt to wait weeks, months and sometimes years, just to receive word from a love one. How cherished these letters would have been. It is like holding his heart in your hands.

The focal of this pair of mixed media earrings is the resin-ed miniature reprints of an old letter. One side is the body of this letter, and the other is the signature of the writer. Other components include brass wires, various findings and a pair of striated blue Picasso Jasper beads.

* the earrings are 3.75 inches in length including earwires, 1.5 inches across
* the earwires are 20g brass wires augmented by fire.

Light by luthien27
Light
“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, when one only remembers to turn on the light.” ~ Dumbledore

'Light' is shaped to symbolize a lantern. Made out of brass wires, recycled brass, solder, various findings and Picasso Jasper beads, this pair of earrings measures 3.5 inches in length (including earwires). Light and delicate, this piece must be one of the cutest piece I have made!

*Earwires are 20g brass wire, augmented by fire.

Journey (Paths Series) by luthien27
Journey (Paths Series)

Paths is a series of 3 miniature book necklaces :
Journey, Memories, Continuity

From time to time my work gravitates back to a certain few symbols. Whenever I need to regroup, having had too much distractions to a point where I feel that my creative process doesn't make sense anymore, I would slowly pull myself back to base, and search within again, instead of with-out. And I always go back to books. They are my most basic canvas, and my most dear. I also find that I would gravitate towards the clock face and the compass. They intrigue me. I ask myself why. With the compass, perhaps I yearn for a sense of direction, or an exploration, to be free. With the clock face … a sense of regret? Of time wasted? Of non achievement? Of running out of time?

In this series, I wanted to explore deeper … but I also wanted to look at the positive side of these symbols. After a long thought, I finally had an epiphany. I started to work on my compass piece. This time I saw it as life's 'Journey'. Everyday we are on a Journey, and we discern and learn things on our way. We become better, hopefully. And with that we create 'Memories'. That's how my second piece came about. Making Memories with love ones, making memories with our surroundings, our work ... our Self. Suddenly, I realized that the clock face or timepiece fitted in perfectly. No longer is it about running out of time … it is now about 'Continuity'. The Continuity of this Journey in the first place, the Continuity of these Memories … The Continuity of Life, as a cycle.

So now I see my symbols in a different light, a different Path. Maybe in all this time they have been as such … Perhaps it is I who chose not to see them this way.

-------------------------------------------------

These mixed media book necklaces are an assemblage of resined paper, antique clock and watch gears, ornate filigrees, recycle brass sheets and brass wires, patina, brass tone findings, glass beads and various Jasper beads. Journey has a compass needle made from brass wire and clay, Memories has an old clock face and a pennib and Continuity has an old flat key.

* the necklace is 28 inches in circumference, plus 6 inches from bail to end of book

* the book measures approx. 1.75 (W) x 2.25 (H) x 0.75 (T) inches and has 152 writable pages. Pages are coffee stained. I have my name signed randomly on one of the pages.
