Peace

First  of  all--you  guys--Thank  You--all  of  you.  I  knew  if  I  asked  for  help,  I'd  get  it.   What  I've  done  is  make  a  jewelry  folder  in  my  computer  and  I've  bookmarked  all  of  the  links  that  everyone  has  told  me  about.   I  bet  you  can  guess  what  my  winter  project  is  this  year!

I've  had  to  put  my  "jewelry  making"  on  the  back  burner  for  a  bit  (but  not  for  long).  I  still  need  to  get  back  to  my  "day  job",  because  I  have  ONE  more  show  to  go.  I  must  say,  that  I  enjoy  this,  but  next  year--easing  up  on  the  show  circuit.  I  completely  missed  Fall  this  year---when  we  didn't  have  the  gloomy  days,  the  weather  here  was  beautiful--at  least  I  think  it  was--I  couldn't  really enjoy  it,  because  I  was  too  busy  here  to  even  get  out.

Oh  well--about  the  post,  and  what  I've  been  doing.  In   keeping  with  the  style  of  the  Santa  that  I  showed  you  here,  and  the  Snowman  that  I  showed  you  here,  I  made  another  angel--


I  was  struggling  with  her  at  first,  but  then  I  just  listened  to  my  own  advice,  and  let  her  help  me,  and  everything  just  came  together--








I  just  love  to  use  collage  and  lots  of  texture  when  I  make  pieces--even  if  I  try  not  to.  I  guess you  should  do  what  appeals  to  you  the  most--right?

So  in  the  end---it  all  came  together--


This  is  fairly  large--about  24  inches  long,  and  no  matter  how  many I  took, I  just  didn't  like  the  photos--but  trust  me---it's  better  in  person.  And  right  now,  I'm  working  on  another  angel  type--a  little  bit  different  medium.   I  really  do  enjoy  making  angels!

She's got such a peaceful appearance, and is a real beauty. I love seeing all the details within your pieces, and love looking for every fragment of lace you've used in each of your works. Wishing you time to enjoy a bit of fall ... before winter rushes in.

Love, love her! Always enjoy all your embellishments on your pieces. Have an angel theme coming up here too. Must be the season:)

And it came together quite well, too! This entire assemblage is gorgeous. Your attention to detail is always fantastic. Super piece!

Your angel is stunning! I love all the embellishments you have added to her and the background is gorgeous!

Hi Diane! You are right, it came together perfectly! Your angel is beautiful and your design is just heavenly. Lovely work! :)

kluless said...

Stunning as always! I was surprised to discover you don't do holiday shows. Seems like some of the other blogs I read are just now gearing up while you are finishing up. I did holiday shows YEARS ago and enjoyed it but also have to admit it also makes you get pretty burnt on looking at all that Christmas! Sounds like you are planning to relax and enjoy the season!

Dorthe said...

How fantastic, and absolutely beautifull, Diane- she is so lovely, and surrounded with beauty all over,
happy week-end dear-
Hugs,Dorthe

sharon said...

Diane! This is gorgeous and I really love the metal embellishments and the texture!

The best book I ever bought to help myself with jewelry was Sharilyn Miller's "Bead on a Wire".
Best ever investment. Also, lots of pracrice to master wireworking. Hope that helps.
Thank you for always being so supportive.

Carin said...

I ADORE her! She is so sweet and serene!

She is lovely!!! I love all the texture you use!!

Jenny Blair said...

I am in awe of how much detail you add and how much work you put into each piece. Stunning!! :)

Emelie said...

Diane, to ring the wing like that across her body is such a clever idea, you know how one gets a feeling they would never think of that, I don't think I would of thought of it. Her face the added embellishments and the color are just perfect, I think it would be a hard piece of work to part with.
Wonderful hair, so I go on and on just so you know, I mean it.

peggy aplSEEDS said...

Your angel is just exquisite and so peaceful. I love her! Your work is amazing, I think. Thanks for visiting my blog - I'm glad so I was reminded to come visit you too. What a treat!

Hi Diane, This Angel is just lovely~ I love it when you feel stuck and you just let it guide you along out of that feeling. Sometimes it takes a twist on what we thought we were creating but that is the amazing part. Thanks for stopping by~
I look forward to visiting again.
