Spotlight on Kristi Bowman Designs

My last post featured a few earrings made with gorgeous white copper clay from artist Kristi Bowman (her shop can be found here).  Well, I ran out, so I had to buy some more!

I ordered a few copper components for earring pairs, and a pair of white copper clay Coptic Crosses.  Kristi was extremely generous and included much more than I originally ordered!  Kristi - a fellow horse lover (who is not a horse lover???) - wanted to help me in my continuing efforts to raise funds in support of Miracle Horse Rescue.

Look at all these beauties!

I am particularly fond of these copper Buddha charms

And look at the design possibilities with these!  Her ability to achieve such a lovely patina with a torch amazes me!

I chose these to work with first - Goddess Charms

Not only is the texture and the color phenomenal, but there is just the slightest arc in those charms - that arc is what causes the copper to reflect the light so perfectly!

I topped these beautiful Goddess charms with equally lovely, organic lampwork beads by Juith Billig

Judith entitled these beads Turquoise Relics - I love the name as much as the beads!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart Kristi!!  Please be sure to visit Kristi's shop - I could spend all day there!

Thanks for stopping by today - have a lovely weekend!  And, Happy Mother's Day!!!!
