Dreams of Pandora series

And here comes another finished UFO!

Have you seen Avatar the movie? If not - you should. Even if you are not into sci-fi, just go for the colors. It is such a treat for the eyes! Even if the scope is slightly primitive, the movie was spectacular. I mean SPECTACULAR. Be sure, it will be an endless source for your inspiration.

Honestly, I'v made drawings for this one even prior to the movie. But I just did not have inspiration to finish this piece. After seing the Avatar, I got a kick in my back.

I called this one Ancient Ritual. Still not sure if it should be fringed or not... Do not think so, actually.

Yes, one more thing... Guys making jewelry for sci-fi movies, I do envy you big time!

Deep Blue Sea - EBW

Pfew, it was a close shave this month, but I've finished the Challenge piece two days before the deadline.

The theme is "Ocean". Here are my waves. The original plan was to feature a large kyanite cabochon in the middle of the choker, and to make a wavy pattern on entire length of the necklace. It looked too busy and I had to cut it. The kyanite got replaced by a large Swarovski pendant, because the stone just did not want to play along with other crystals that I used to assemble the 3D RAW wave. It took a while to find a suitable ribbon... Then it was a long hunt for a clasp that I wanted to be sterling silver ribbon holder. Guess if I was glad to find it in France for couple of weeks ago. Did I get within three to five working days as was promised by the shop? Not really... So, I had to invent a wheal, in this case: clasp. Seen something similar once (work of Kristina Kristianson) and just borrowed the idea due to lack of time and inspiration.

Well, enough complaining - it actually does not look all too bad.

Voting will start as usually, on 9th of February at and will continue until February the 15th. Everybody is welcome to vote and leave a comment!
