It’s Good Friday!

These photos were taken on a recent trip to D.C. I paid a visit to the awe inspiring Basilica of the National Shrine of Immaculate Conception. The landscape was adorned with full bloom magnolias. The architecture was Romanesque- Byzantine style, built to accommodate crowds of worshipers. The large dome provided amazing acoustics and the ordered architectural language emphasized sculptural solidity. You feel tiny next to this monument. I’m small, but I felt tiny.

This made me miss LA’s flair. Surprisingly, the only thing that brought me to this page was a friend’s photobomb of the food served on a familiar looking dinnerware (Juliska). I recognized it from what used to be a best seller at ABC Home. They no longer carry the item, replacing it with a more delicate, handmade, and French line, Astier de Villatte. I can barely afford a $100 mug, but I’ve splurged on the $50 incense. MMmMm… Namche Bazaar.

I’m not one for trends, but I’m recently finding inspiration from anything involving these three colors: Malachite green, mint blue, and coral peach. I haven’t noticed my recent infatuation until reviewing some old posts. I made note of this crystal after coming across a recent customer purchase at work for apophyllite. It was the first time I’ve ever noticed the crystal out of all the times I’ve visited gem stores and bead shows. I was moved. I’ve been dreaming these colors ever since.

The image on the left is an original Alexander Calder necklace. The ceramic necklace was wrapped in brass wire. This image serves perfect inspiration for my next project. I’ve coincidentally collected several broken pieces of pottery this year with the anticipation of wearing them as jewelry. I couldn’t throw away my recently acquired, hand-painted porcelain mug from Vietnam! This will do the justice..
