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.
"Yes, yes," said Gollum. "All dead, all rotten. Elves and Men and Orcs. The Dead Marshes.."
You know how at times you pick something up and can't put it down..mesmerizing..as you look upon it you are drawn in..your imagination is in gear..must do something..This is how it was when I opened my package from wondrousstrange (http://wondrousstrange.etsy.com) (see earlier post below..) This raku cross pendant was truly a joy to create..one of those experiences that give you a certainty .. it is worthwhile to create, to be an artist ..to be financially struggling to be sure..but a strange happy, fulfilled.feeling.
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.
