Green,woodland, mists, lava stone, blues, hydrangeas, forest, clearings, moss, rock walls, volcano, magic, fire.. middle earth makings. The jewels I create and the jewel of this Earth where I create them..the Azores Islands.
Flea markets here in the Azores are a very rare thing, indeed, but lately the first Sunday of the month at Relvão is gaining popularity..I was so pleased to find these old hardware bits and pieces..that I got home and in 10 minutes transformed one into a cool frame..and a junky earring into a 'rose'..
Ugly copper chain ..became much needed pendant frames and the chain turned out to be solid copper!
Rabo de Peixe, São Miguel Azores Islands, Portugal
MiddleEarth's is located in the Azores Islands..Europe's most westerly point to America. Nine volcanic islands, 'lost' somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic ocean.
This is a magical land, ever inspiring MiddleEarth's jewels. Some say it may be Lost Atlantis, or perhaps the rest of mythical Avalon... For me, it is middle-earth, and every detail of my work reflects the overwhelming, almost magical presence of nature that is found here in every glance, every nook, every hidden path and secret garden.
It is my aspiration that every wearer of my creations will experience, somehow.. this magic.
