Red Dyed Howlite Flower Earrings with Moonstone Accents


I got a strand of these cute little 15mm dyed howlite flower shaped beads from Fire Mountain Gems. The strand I got was multi colored with orange, white, yellow, green, hot pink and blue. 

(The multi color strand is no longer available, but they do have a light blue strand that is only $1.00!!)

These beads are light weight, and make the cutest earrings!

Howlite is the stone that helps to aid in self awareness and and improving ones emotional well being. It just seem perfect to  add a  faceted moonstone heishi cut beads to accent the design and for the metaphysical properties of encouraging hopes and dreams. 

I just love how they turned out!

Can't wait to show you my next creation!

Thanks for stopping by, be blessed and always remember to find time to create!

All of my jewelry creations are based on the metaphysical properties of the stones or the colors that are incorporated.

Art Abandonment and Bonnaroo

Two things I look forward to every year


and

                                      


These two things make me giddy with excitement! I love making art and abandoning it all over the Raleigh area on Black Friday, and I absolutely LIVE for going to Bonnaroo.

The last few years at Bonnaroo, I have combined my two loves, and I abandon art around the festival.

Each year Bonnaroo changes it colors, and I create pendants that are made of the same colors and drop them around for people to find.


These pendants were from 2016







Last year, 2017 I did pendants, and crocheted bracelets. 






This year, 2018,  hot pink and lime green, being dominant colors, I found these fun little skull beads at Michaels, and the fun began!


Bonnaroo is getting so close and I can't stand it! I may even drop some tie dyed shirts this year too!!!

Thanks for stopping by, be blessed, and always find time to create!

Maybe I will see you on the farm!

The Diversity of a Spiral - Tie Dye How To!

Who knew that the classic spiral tie dye was so diverse!

Who knew that the placement of the dye on the spiral created all of the awesome spiral effects that you see on tie dyed shirts!

AND even if you do all the dying the same way, how each spiral can vary!

This shirt was done with a three color stripe on one side and a solid color on the other side, and see the differences of this shirts!







This one is done, with one color on one side, and one color on the other. Very dramatic and bold look!


                                      

I have done a tutorial on two different dye placements on a spiraled shirt here on my YouTube channel . Tie Dye Tutorial .

I have more tutorials coming!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a blessed day, and always create!
