First of all, I create a summer theme for Kary.  I design the mermaid clasp with some pearls and corals and some starfish like clasp and earrings or connectors.  Additionally I create a teardrop pure copper chain, add some czech beads and enameled beads.  Everything in bright and joyful colors.

Now, I want to show you what Kari sent me 🙂

Immediately I received my beads I fall in love with everything.  The wood and the ceramic beads colors are just perfect.  The first bead that catch my eyes was the wood beads with Alice in wonderland theme.  I personally enjoy and love Alice in wonderland story; mostly, the recently Disney movie.

And here are the photos of what I create!

I didn’t visit Canada yet (who know… someday) but I always remember an oral report that I have to make for school.  And the first time that I saw the flag of Canada, I fall in love with that beautiful maple leaf.   I don’t know why; but the image always comes to my mind.

Waxed Linen Jewelry Blog Hop

Some time ago I bought some waxed linen cord.  And honestly I had completely forgotten. Thats why when I saw that Diana P. from Suburban Girl Studio, decided to host a jewelry blog hop using waxed linen cord I didn’t think twice to participate.

So, this is my first time using waxed linen cord for my jewelry design.

For my first design I used Jade Scott‘s strand connector

This is the soup that I received from Judy.

The first thing that I see in these beads was the colors.  So rich and bright that inspire me, not only to make the BSBP final pieces, but also inspired to play with other colors combination for my own designs, like this flower that I made.

Torch Fired Enameled Wire
I create this enameled wire pendant flower, inspired by the colors of the soup.

The other thing is my first time to make pieces with lampwork beads.  I’ve been hoarding some lampwork bead for a while.  I love them but I found that I was having problems to incorporate them to my pieces.  But now I have the wonderful time and opportunity to play with some of them. And what better to do with the beads that Judy sent me!! 🙂

This is what I finally create!! 🙂

Spring and Summer Inspiration

Ups, I don’t post anything for a while….sorry for that.   I was a little bit busy, specially on my full time job. You can make plans and sometimes the things doesn’t work. :-(. Such is life!!!

Anyway, I was making some news designs for my Etsy shop. I was tried to made a ballerina dress for the Art Bead Scene April Challenge. But I finished with….

Swimsuit Pendant

 

A swimsuit pendant !! 🙂 It’s fun, whimsical and adorable!!

I love birds; thats why ArtIncendi logo have a bird design.  The other day I was at my parents house and I saw a “Mariquita Puertorriqueña” this adorable bird is a native bird of Puerto Rico.

Thats why I decided to make this fabulous bird toggle clasp. I don’t use a lot the black color for my handmade clasps/supplies/components.  But, honestly I really love how does little bird looks.

I easily get inspired by nature. I lived surrounded by flowers and birds and I used that inspiration to create my pieces.  Puerto Rico have beautiful beaches too;  and the nearest beach it’s about 1 hour and half from my house.

Spring it a wonderful season but I start to feel a sweet summer breeze 🙂  Here in Puerto Rico, we practically have spring and summer season 365 days of the year!!!

But for these occasion I get more inspire and create these lovely flower with wire.
