EST Weekly Challenge - Self Portrait

This weeks European Street Team challenge was hosted by the lovely Dawn from LaTouchables and although she gave us "free hand" in interpreting our self portrait: "For example, you could be your favorite stone, your favorite colours, your favorite materials, the things that are closest to your soul, what you think is the core of who you are...with a twist...make it really YOU!" I took it literally and I actually took my picture and turned it into wearable art and made a fabric cuff.

I recycled an old shirt of my son, added some Japanese glass beads and two dragonflies.

If you would like to see what the other members of the team made for the challenge, please visit Dawn's blog.

Flickr Favorites - He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

It's Tuesday so it's time for the flick favorites, nice tradition started by Mitsy (aka Artmind).

The theme is -well - spring again, I just cannot think of anything else lately... so flowers, spring, sun and... oh yes, love is in the air! :)

Thank's Bence for the inspiration, that necklace is just stunning!!

Monday Moodboard - Green

I made a series of new necklaces from polymer clay for the upcoming joyful seasons, spring and summer. I had these wonderful hand painted silk ribbons made by Silk Studio for a time now and I always imagined doing something very girlie to enhance their beautiful cinnamon/purple/pinkish color. So I used similar colored mica clay to company the beauty of the silk and lace imprints, with a touch of cream paint to give it an antiqued look. I am pretty pleased with the results :) The necklaces are perfect for summer dresses, the long ribbon gives you the possibility to wear them in many ways and they definitely have that romantic girlie charm :)

And if we are already talk about warmer weather , I finally found some evidence of spring in my garden :)

So today's moodboard is all about green:
