Shop Preview:The Mermaid's Necklace and Ocean-Inspired earrings

 Inspired by the sea in which the larimar stone is found I created this necklace to showcase this stunning stone.  Larimar is said to be a very powerful stone. It is often called the Dolphin or Atlantis stone. It is found only in one place in the world in the Carribean sea. It is a beautiful blue and white. Larimar is believed to facilitate inner wisdom, channel healing energies, and brings calm to the wearer. It is also said to draw one's soulmate. This Larimar stone is a beautiful and a mystical stone.

This stone is beautiful. If you look closely, you can see a heart and a butterfly in the patterns of the stone. This is one of a kind. I created a chain of turquoise, pearls and aquamarine to compliment the larimar. The setting is handmade. I accented the bezel with tiny circles to remind you of bubbles from the ocean. The back has bubbles on it also. 

Every drop in the ocean counts.

This past week I also created some simple earrings for the shop. I used sterling silver circles and ovals that I made and added Kyanite and Labradorite drops to them. They are great everyday earrings. 
All of these pieces should be listed in the shop soon.

Happy Monday everyone!

Butterfly Seekers

Yesterday, we walked over to the Sunken Gardens with my camera in hand. I really wanted to try to take some pictures of the amazing flowers that I had seen there a couple of weeks ago and look for butterflies. We walked over to my favorite spot and found these beautiful creatures. Some were in full bloom and a few were getting ready to blossom. I took lots of photos as "Little Bit" wanted to go out and look for the butterflies.
I took a few more pictures of these amazing flowers while she pleaded with me to look for the butterflies.

And then she saw one! 
They were flying all around. She was so excited.  We tried so hard to catch a picture of one of the beautiful ones as they whipped past us, but they kept flying high above us to the beautiful bouganvillia's. So I decided to try to get a picture of them up high.

 After trying to catch a picture of the butterflies we walked around the rest of the Gardens and found some amazing flowers and beautiful ferns. The Gardens are so peaceful and calming. We could have spent hours there. It is an inspiring place.

This is my shop/studio where I work most days. There is an amazing energy down there with the other artists. I love working down there and being around other creative spirits.

I am headed down there now after I type this and take a couple more photos. I hope you have a lovely day.

Today there is going to be lots of Holiday decorating going on for the Gallery Walk this Saturday.

Butterflies and Turquoise New Work Preview

I saw a butterfly on my walk last night with my daughter. 
They have been on my mind often lately. I wasn't sure if they were still around here in Florida, because it had gotten a little cooler...but I spotted one! Now I am going to be on the look-out for them. 

They represent change and the beauty within. They represent the soul. 
I believe when they show up in your life, there is a message for you to see. 

"The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough."
                                                             Rabindranath Tagore

The butterfly circle
the circle of your life
Find your way
Make a wish
Follow your intuition.

This necklace may help you find your spirit and the strength to be your authentic you.

Butterfly Agate Necklace.

This agate is beautiful. Agate is said to attract strength and help with stress. 
It is also said to be  a protection from bad dreams. And the butterfly will remind you of your beauty within. 

Turquoise Ring with hidden Butterfly

Turquoise is a wonderful gift for a friend. It is said to bring to that friend good fortune and protect them from negative energy.

Turquoise carries great wisdom. 
There is a hidden butterfly on the back of the ring. It will remind you of your hidden strengths.

Yummy bracelets with handmade clasps.
Labradorite and Fresh Water Pearls
Labradorite, Onyx, and Fresh Water Pearls
Labradorite and Onyx

Close-up of Larimar Bracelet.

I hope to list everything very soon. 

Thank you for your support. Kathryn

Dali Museum

Today we visited the Dali Museum. It is an amazing place full of inspiration in every corner. The building and the grounds are beautiful. And the Artwork inside is unexplainable. It is so powerful. I need to visit this Museum more often than once or twice a year. I love that it is here in St Petersburg! 

We went on a "treasure hunt" to find specific paintings. They have a special packet for kids to make it fun for them. We had to walk through the Museum twice, because we missed a few of them. I really enjoyed looking for those paintings and so did my daughter. 
She thought it was a wonderful adventure. 

And this is the view from inside looking out onto the water. 

Outside is a wishing tree. After you visit the museum, you can attach your bracelet that they give you (for entry) onto the tree. It is quite pretty blowing in the wind. 
We made a wish.

I love this bench! 

 This is the view from the Museum out to the water. It is a beautiful setting. 

It was a spur of the moment decision to go and I am so happy that we did. We were driving by on the way home from the beach and decided to go. We had windblown hair and sand on our toes, but we had a wonderful time.

I hope you had a lovely weekend too!
