Minimalist Translucent Floating Constellation Necklaces

Aquarius Necklace
Aquarius Necklace / Luckystardreams.com

In February of 2016, I made a set of more delicate and feminine constellation necklaces. They are these translucent floating constellation necklaces listed for sale on luckystardreams.com.  They were so popular that I had to make extras.

These constellation necklaces are sparkly, light, modern minimalist meets feminine. I was inspired by the sparkling night sky, natural light, and minimalism. I designed and handmade these necklaces to have light, natural, and subtle variation from my original crystal constellation necklace design.

I’ve had many customers get them as birthday gifts as well as memorial jewelry.

Orion Necklaces

Orion’s Belt Necklace

Have you seen my Orion and Orion’s Belt constellation necklaces yet? I make all kinds of crystal constellation jewelry but there are quite a few new Orion pieces in my Etsy shop, luckystardreams.etsy.com .

Maybe you know that I make jewelry when I’m not painting or dancing. It’s exciting to hear positive feedback I’ve been getting lately. Since my shop, Lucky Star Dreams is experiencing record growth, I’ll stop keeping this “other” job a secret.

Here’s the story: Continue reading “Orion Necklaces”

Tonight’s life drawing group meeting at the Ocean City Arts Center is on.

Via Meed:

Dear Artists,

Happy 2018 to all!

Are you ready for a great painting night?  We will reinstate the plan we had to cancel for December.  Short-Haired Anne will be our model.  She will be nude, but using props, and a theme of black, white and red.  I am already intrigued.  Anne is so good at making a painterly spectacle that we can be sure of a productive evening.  So bring your paints and a good canvas to kick off the 2018 season!

Added bonus:  See the lovely, and often narrative, work of Grace Zambelli who is showing at OCAC in January.  (You can also meet her at the reception the following evening.)

Who’s in?  RSVP deadline is Tuesday, January 9, 5pm.

All details are the same:  OC Arts Center, 5pm – 8:45pm, $15 per session (exact change please), All mediums welcome except photography, Oil painters must clean up and dispose of terpinoid at home.  We have chairs, and some easles.  Artists bring everything else, including drawing board.

Newcomer?  Direct questions to me via email, or *phone number* (comment if you want her number).

Can’t wait to get back to work!

Musing:  What a gorgeous, severe-clear, pristine snowfall!  Years ago, I would treasure days just such as this.  It meant perfect viewing conditions at the old Barnes Foundation–in the upstairs room where the drawings and watercolors were, shimmering in their understated gold frames.  I really miss that.
