Enzuri Locket by GemDeDude Enzuri Locket by GemDeDude
Late spring. The sky is sometimes clear and bright, other times is cloudy, but still beautiful. A green field at the feet of a mountain with three still snowy peaks. A sign of the present and a memory of the past. On the field there's a river flowing fast, we don't know where. The future? Its bed is silvery. We could imagine all this when looking at this pendant. :)

The earring has no pair. It's faith is to come in the completion of the pendant. :) Through similar colors and shapes, but through the number of beads too: six, one of the lucky numbers of the Taurus. It brings something more too, the blue of the sky or maybe of the ocean, in iridescences that are there only for the eyes of those who look for them.

In my documentation on natives in the Taurus house I've found a few interesting things. One of them is that their characteristic (and lucky) metal is copper. This worked perfectly with my plans. :) I also found out that this is an earth sign and that it's associated with the spring bloom, all these being perfectly expressed by the green agate, with white and brownish enclosures which look like geological bedding.

The agate will help the Taurus native to defeat the fear of taking risks, to get rid of anxiety and get over failures with more ease.

The white jade completes the pendant perfectly, bringing equilibrium and wisdom and leading to prosperity, which will bring joy to those who wish to live in comfort, surrounded by beauty.

The labradorite will help its wearer to concentrate on what matters and to look at the people around them with more trust.


My second locket! :la: This time made properly ;P, with a stone.

This is part of a set that I made specially for a contest with a zodiacal theme on Breslo. That's why it has that long description. All entries in the contest have to have all the details in the description, including why the stones were chosen and such. I wish I could do this with all my creations!

It won the 3rd place! :la:

If you are curios, here is the piece that won the first place [link] and here is the one that won the second place [link] .

The other piece in the set is an ear cuff that you can see here: [link]

Materials used for the necklace: wire and other copper elements, agate cabochon, white jade beads.
Tutorial: [link]

The set is for sale, note me if you're interested. :blush:

Mergi la Art Boutique? :D Sigur o sa va vizitez! Chiar sunt curioasa cum e atmosfera. :D Ma gandeam si eu sa merg, daca m-ar fi acceptat, dar mi-e frica fara PFA. :(

Eu nu mai stau in Bucuresti din septembrie, altfel sigur veneam sa va vad. :hug: Cateodata mi-e dor de Bucuresti. ;P Credeam ca in Sibiu o sa fie mai usor sa obtin autorizatie sa le vand la tarabioara, ca ne zisese cineva ca aici doar mergi la primarie si iei autorizatia. :lol: M-am invatat minte sa nu mai cred pe nimeni nimic si sa verific singura. ;P Si aici nici nu-mi pot face PFA pentru ca nu am locuintza aici. :lol: Dar vad eu cum o rezolv si cand o sa am PFA-ul o sa incerc sa merg la targuri in toata tara si poate atunci o sa ne mai vedem. :D Bafta la targ! :hug:

foarte bine. sa iti iei ca nu strica.
nici eu nu stau in bucuresti de cativa ani buni, dar nu pot spune ca imi lipseste :D
iti faci PFA acasa, unde ai locuinta ca apoi poti sa le vinzi oriunde ai sta.
multumim :hug:

With a walkthrough that detailed I hope not to need luck :) I probably will though.

Oh, and thanks for the Llama :) I loves her. Her name is now Penelope.

You're welcome! :D

I wanted to wish you something else, "spor!" :D That is a Romanian expression that means something like "I wish you to finish your work fast and with success". ;P I looked many times for a similar expression in English, but I couldn't find anything else but "good luck" or so. If there's one that doesn't appear in the dictionaries and you know it, I will be forever grateful to you if you share it with me. :lol: I AM always worried that "good luck" might offend some people, as I don't like it myself when people wish me good luck when I know there is only work and no luck involved in what comes out from my hands. :lol: I guess I'll just wish them "spor" from now on, if there's no English expression that means that. :giggle:

No expression comes to mind. English is kind of an unusual language. I appreciate the spor though :P

mm, quite nicely done. I do feel that the thinner gauge wire gives it a thematically-appropriate more organic feel. Congratulations on having learnt the tutorial well! :nod:
