Spring Greens. Work in Progress

After the Christmas break, I've mainly been working on custom pieces for people I know. Yesterday evening I finally got down to a crafty session to replenish diminished stock in my Etsy shop. I realised I was almost out of Connemara marble pendants so knuckled down to make a couple of pieces with St Patrick's Day in mind. Naturally, green has got to be the colour of the moment!
 My Celtic heart pendants are always popular. This is a beautiful piece of Connemara marble. 
This stunning specimen of Connemara marble is a once-off piece. I was inspired to make this Celtic Pub Ornament by one of my best and (am I allowed to say?) favourite customers. ;-) You know who you are...
 I will shortly be listing this zesty pendant made from sea pottery that I found on a Dublin beach. It is a fresh, lime colour that will look fabulous with a white T-shirt, or a summer dress. It will also stand out against that LBD, making a simple, chic statement.
And just to prove there really are 40 shades of green, this OOAK Connemara marble pendant falls at the other end of the verdant spectrum. It is a very cool shade with typical, grayish marbling. The dark, February weather here in Dublin makes it a challenge to photograph, but I've done my best to capture it.  I hope to list this special Sterling silver Claddagh and Connemara marble pendant this week. This is very much, one of a kind and will not be repeated. The stone was cut specially for me by a Galway mason. The solid silver charm is vintage from the 80s and the only one I have.

    1. Gracias Margarita. Me encanta la phrase que has usado 'me ha robado el corazon.' Eres poeta como tu madre :-)

    2. No....ella no era exactamente una poetisa..es en sentido figurado...quería decir que tenia una mirada clara en todo y positiva...muy inteligente pero sin estudios superiores...
      Me gustan las mujeres "antiguas", que no viejas, que eran sencillas pero muy listas ...
      En cuanto a la frase apuntatela (take note)es muy española..cuando algo te gusta mucho "te roba el corazón "
      Un placer
