I’m a little bit late!  But thank God I’m Here!

Nan Smith, a Canadian bead blogger is hosting the My Country blog today.  The challenge is to use our country as a inspiration. My lovely country is Puerto Rico and, like all of the countries of the world, have a lot of places, views, etc. to get inspired.

I normally mention that I always get inspired by nature.  My hometown is Aibonito and locally is known as “The City of the Flowers”

For this blog hop I want to show some of photos of flowers and how I get inspired to create enameled components for jewelry.

I love birdies, and I live surrounded of lovely birds.  Here is a photo of one of our local birds and how I made a lovely toggle clasp.

And to finish this blog hop, I want to share with you my version of the “Three Wise Men”  or  “Los Tres Reyes Magos”

 

Tres Reyes Magos

 

We celebrate The Three Wise Men day on January 6.  Some people said that we have the longest christmas season in the world.  We start to celebrating on Thanksgiving Day until January 6.

Thank you so much for visit my blog….. And now; I invite you to visit the rest of the participants…..

  1. You certainly have a beautiful country to inspire your jewelry making. Your enameled flowers and birdie toggle are both lovely. You do really beautiful work, Johana.Those 3 wise men are fabulous, too! thanks for joining in and sharing with us.

  2. I really do like your enamel work. I am hoping that the enameled flowers are in your store. I am anticipating my order from you. Your bird toggles are gorgeous; so are the Three Wise Men.

  3. I can only imagine how inspiring Flower Festival is! And nature is a constant source of inspiration – a flower or a bird turn into a beautiful piece of art – both the connectors and the clasp can be focals of jewelry pieces! And an extended holiday is worth it when you expect to get a present at the end from the Three Wise Men 🙂

  4. It must be very special to live in the City of Flowers, an every day inspiration for the beautiful enamelled flowers and birdies you create.
    In The Netherlands we also celebrate the Three Wise men and clean up the Christmas tree 🙂 and decoration on that day!

    I love your enamel work, its very special! Thank you for the beautiful pictures

  5. You must feel very fortunate to live in a place with such beautiful natural inspiration. Your enameled flowers and bird clasp are beautiful, and the little wise men sculpture is fabulous.

  6. Your enamel work is wonderful. I love the flowers and the birdie and the 3 wise men!! Just amazing work! Have a Blessed Day!
