#Handcrafted wire jewelry

Rainy day in Georgia - Where is the Sun?

As a woman, I wear many hats, among which is being a techy.
Currently at techy SAP bootcamp in GA for 3 months. 
:(
 takes me away from my beloved crafts,
 but :)
 I will be able to do more and get paid beaucoup cash when I am done.
for now, you will see a lot less posting than I had initially intended)
Meanwhile, its been raining all day, so I am dreaming the sunlight's return. In between breaks, restrung this bracelets with new handmade jumprings  components. These little artistic furrows makes the techy jargon stuff feel a lot less menacing.

They may not have made it on my online shop, but are available for purchasing.. Please let me know if you are interested in any of them. Contact me at: Monickdavi@gmail.com Best, Moe

Falling for Fall!

Falling for fall

 My favourite seasons, bright colorful days, cool night, apple-picking, pumpkin carving, multicolor mums blooming, warm apple cider to warm up your bones on windy cold days. 

 

Explosions of colors!

More than we can carry. Five more trees left to collect from.

Wire wrap bracelets inspired by the turning leaves. I used agate chips, non-tarnished gold toned wire, 8 mm seed beads in a rosary- linked style. 

 

Popping out of the blogging closet - Finally!

For the longest time I have had difficulty with this word "artist". It immediately puts me in the defensive. I could hear my self say, "Oh no, I am not! That is for the big boys in the big pool. Meanwhile, when I am not pigeonholed behind a desk, you will find me in my artist closet, expressing myself through many mediums such as, but not limited to ballroom dancing, drumming, mosaic art, decoupage, acrylic painting, abstract collage art, quilting, fiber art, and more. I can't remember a time in my life when I was not handcrafting. Recently I developed an obsession with wire art and wire weaving. The current obsession begun with these little bags, (see pics attached)  I took a stringing and beading class to learn how to add the snap on the beads.. This one class open up my appetite to the wonders of beads and their origins. Being an obsessive person, I slept and drink every thing beads and eventually opened up a store named Charmed Beading Studio with a partner. We sold beads, taught classes and had social events in the community. It was rewarding to be able to check off one off the bucket list: Creative endeavor serving the community" check box.  However, my personal life as a traveller, crafter, and other interest took a back seat to the rigors of owning a brick and mortar store. I came quickly to the conclusion that at this stage of my life, mobility and creative expressions  was essential for my own personal development. So I sold my end of the business and  now focussing on developing my own line of jewelry and gifts online. Tendrilsandlace.com

This blog is about the journey and the angst of a self-taught wire art handcrafting artist.

Come along take a peek and let me know what you think.

These little bags...

These little bags...

I attempted a number of times, to start a blog on my creative process, but got bullied by the little censuring voice in my head saying that there is nothing new to contribute, The net is saturated with bloggers, artists and the likes. I also worried if I would have enough content to blog constantly on a long term basis, or bore people, or worst be so successful at it that it would take over my life (haha! that would be the day).

A friend of mine Salima Raoui of Art Being and Becoming (A holistic approach using various tools of hypno-resonance and visual collage journalling to clear emotional blockages and releasing them with reviewed energy and awareness) was instrumental in unlocking the door of my artist closet and encouraged me with these words "Our challenges, failures, and triumphs are all testimonies of our Presence in this lifetime. Not sharing them shortchanges us and others who could benefit from the richness of experiences we could contribute to our community and eventually the world."

 Sooo, with that said, follow along as I add my two-cents-dropper full, trails of crumbs in the forest-full experiences of life.

#artist walk, #Handcrafted wire jewelry

My artist walk

On Autum equinox day my daughter wanted to have a date with me in nature.  I chose this opportunity to make it my artist walk as well. We went for a long stroll through Brookdale Park at my daughter request who loves nature and sees beauty in every blade of grass, in every leaping squirrel. Not that I don't share in her enthusiasm, but her appreciation of nature goes beyond the average young adults that I have come in contact with.
