Do you ever wonder what happens to your work once it's been sold, packaged and shipped? I do think about them sometimes, curiosity I guess.
I came across a blog last year of a jewelry designer with lots of pretty pieces. She uses artisan beads a lot, I saw some of her focal beads were from Beads of Clay members that I know. One of her necklaces had been featured on Stringing Magazine and it was just beautiful! I hearted her etsy store Silver Parrot right away and I have continued reading her blog often catching up with what she blogs about. Later on she bought some of my pendants and has returned to buy from me several times now. One of the most recent pendants she got was the one on this necklace that she featured on her blog.
I was very happy to see this piece and to see in it one of my pendants from the line I call Spring Fling for its bright and happy colors and the techniques of an abstract watercolor. Except this batch I made I selected different underglazes of more subdued colors. She bought it and I shipped it.
I loved the use of the open chain and the bits of color that tie-in so well with the colors in the pendant. She has more pictures with a more detailed description on her blog Silver Parrot Blog along with the inspiration when she saw this pendant on my store.
Visit her blog for other pieces she features on the same post that will make you want some jewels for yourself. My favorite in there is the one name "Driftwood". Visit the blog and from there you can jump to her etsy store and see more from Silver Parrot.
