Oo happy day

October 14, 2010

Tänane päev oli väga huvitav ja rõõmustav päev. Sõltumata sellest, et mu tööpäev oli 9 tundi pikk ja peale seda pidin veel oma kursusele jooksma, juhtusin ma juhuslikult oma ema kohtama ja jõudsin isegi kohtuda ka ühe toreda metllikunstniku Üllega, kes andis mulle väga väärt infot metallitöö kohta. Suured tänud talle 🙂 Meie vestlus julgustas mind lõpuks ometi metallikunsti õppima minna ja seda ma ka kavatsen järgmine nädal teha, lähen uuele kursusele. Sellest tuleb täiesti uus ja erakordne etapp mu elus ja olen juba nii põnevil.

Vahepeal said ka ühed kõrvarõngad valmis. Need on sellised lausa külluslikult roosad. Materjalina kasutasingi roosat kvartsi ja ametüsti.

Kas te juba märkasite midagi? Jah, tänasest saab seda blogi lugeda nii eesti kui ka inglise keeles. Kuulasime terve päev Leega Tõnis Mägi laulusid ka ja tunne oli kuidagi eriti…eriline ja kodune, meenus mingi armas tunne lapsepõlvest. Emakeel on ju ikka armas.

Today it was a very interesting and a happy day. Although I had to work nine hours and after that I ran to a  course, I still had some time to accidentally met my mom and met with a metal artist Ülle who gave me a very valuable information about working with metal.  Big thanks to her. 🙂 Our conversation encouraged me to learn some metal art and that´s what I´m going to do next week, I´ll start with a new course. This will be a completely new and special phase in my life and I´m very exited about it.

Meanwhile new earrings are ready. They are made with rose quartz and amethyst.

And as you can see from now on you can read this blog  in english and estonian both. I like my mother tongue.

Crazy Fairy treasury

September 22, 2010

It seems that I got cold and at the moment I´m pretty sick and tired. I wrapped myself into a big cozy blanket and made a hot cup of tea. I used all my teabags today, it means that I have drunk almost 12 cups of tea. 😯

Few minutes ago I made another treasury. I just tried to be more creative. I put all my favorite items, fine art photos and colours together…and I got a beautiful mess.

My first Treasury in Esty

September 3, 2010

Here´s my first Treasury.
As I am a new member of Etsy I want to try to make a Treasury. For me it´s another great reason to be a part of the Etsy community and it gives me another opportunity to play with colours. This Treasury is made with mint green items because it´s one of my favorite colour.

Medusa earrings

August 31, 2010

Are you looking for something new and not so ordinary, something outstanding?

Let me introduce to you, the one and only… Medusa earrings.
These earrings are inspired by Medusa. In Greek mythology Medusa “guardian, protectress” was a Gorgon, a chthonic female monster, and a daughter of Phorcys and Ceto, gazing directly upon her would turn onlookers to stone. She was beheaded by the hero Perseus, who afterwards used her head as a weapon until he gave it to the goddess Athena to place on her shield. In classical antiquity the image of the head of Medusa appeared in the evil-averting device known as the Gorgoneion.

Why Medusa? because I usually know very well how my new creation is going to look like but not this time. This time I just took my materials and started to make something out, so I even can say that these earrings are very unexpected, they surprised me. It´s not the only reason. Since I was a little girl I’ve been fascinated by mythological creatures and the darker wire reminds me of Medusa´s hair. Medusa had snakes for hair.

Below is the picture of  Medusa made by Caravaggio who is one of my favourite Italian artists. I love his paintings and how he described the game of light and shadow.  His realistic works often featured violent struggles, grotesque decapitation, torture and death.
