  1. Wow. Everything is so gorgeous. I had to keep scrolling back and forth to take a second or third look. The first bracelet is my favorite. I love all the tension you created with the different shapes, sizes, and colors.

  2. Dear Johana,
    I’m “flabbergasted” by everything you have created for this blog hop!! Do you have a similar word to this in Spanish ? It means awestruck and overwhelmed (all in a good way!) I love the word that I learned for this when I lived in Britain. Gobsmacked! It’s perfect!
    You really outdid yourself with your creations. That first bracelet is amazing with all the different elements and your use of colour in the overall design. I would definitely love to wear this bracelet . Then there is the fabulous asymmetrical necklace. My little birdie boy looks very happy in his new home! Thanks for taking such good care of him. He was the first bird that I made when I started playing with polymer clay. Also the way you used my beads makes them look like birds eggs….brilliant! And those earrings are fabulous . I really like the ones with the spikes…very dramatic. I was delighted to see your last bracelet with the birds and leaves. Such a simple design but pretty and elegant.
    I probably sent too many birds to you who lives amongst tropical birds everyday but I can see you are enjoying them. I had so much fun with your beads until those perfect headpins and my blue bird broke. I will find a way to rescue them and use them in the future because I love both of them.You’ve been a wonderful partner and I want to thank you for becoming my friend. I hope we will stay in touch and i will enjoy watching where you go with your fabulous artistry.

    • Hi Nan!

      Thank you so much for your kind word. I’m so happy that you like my designs. So I’m sure that I honored your beads 🙂 I would have liked to create more designs, but in recent months my life has been a bit complicated. But thank God everything now is going well. I am sorry that some of your pieces were broken. But I promise I’ll be sending another very special set for you. It has been an honor Nan! :

  3. Loving your pieces! Very fun and earthy. I don’t know whether it was intentionally but they’re all very cohesive as well – like you could mix and match the pieces for a fun & eclectic look

  4. I like the asymmetry of the first bracelet and necklace – they are full of different texture and yet balanced! It never occurred to me to use spikes in bracelets, this is such a fresh idea! I love th whimsical details added here and there in the other three pieces!
