My last Thank You Giveaway

This is the last of my THANK YOU giveaways I have done during this month. I liked celebrating my birthday's month sharing my work with the people who have been making me company in my blog and Facebook page.

Hope you all continue to keep me company and to talk with me by posting in my blog posts and my Facebook page, I enjoy so much having this contact with all of you !! ♥

The earrings I will be giving away are made with silver using one of my signature templates. I textured them with my own texture sheet and hand formed a rose and a swirl to add some extra details.

Honoring Mieko Takahashi Shull and Lucia Gulino: Etsy Metalclay Team Raffle

I am honor to be part of the Etsy Metalclay Team and it was in this group were I met Mieko and Lucia. These two wonderful ladies were not only talented but the nicest persons all the time. They always have nice words and a lot of support for all the other members of the team. Their work was beautiful and you could really see how much they enjoyed life and doing what they were doing.

Sadly for all of us in the team, our teammates and friends Mieko and Lucia passed away recently. We are all very sad to have lost two beautiful souls and wanted to do something in their honor. Members of the team donated a hand made charm made with silver, bronze or copper to create two bracelets. The bracelet chains are hand made with fused argentium sterling silver links with custom made taggles for each bracelet. The bracelet is 7 1/4 inches.

We will raffle the two bracelets and all the proceeds will be donated to charities in their memory. The proceeds will be split 50/50 between World Vision (Mieko's favorite charity) and an art scholarship in Lucia's name.

I made one of these beautiful charms, it is the bracelet with the flower toggle in memory of Mieko.

Please help me and my team member by supporting our raffle, you will love to have one of these bracelets. Buying one ticket ($5 each) will give you two opportunities to win a bracelet.

Visit this page to find out more information and to buy your ticket.

Thank You in advance for your help !

My Virgin is finished

Since I was invited to be the lead artist for Dia de los Muertos: La Ofrenda at SSA, I have been painting some pieces I will display during the event. 

I am planning in having some of my pieces of jewelry, paintings, figurines and folk art inspired in the day of the dead tradition of my country Mexico. All these pieces will be made by me and it will be the first time I will show more than just my jewelry.

Painting and making folk art is something I enjoy doing a lot. I have never taken classes for painting or learn how to create the folk art but I like it to be this way much better because all my work is 100% what comes from my heart.

One piece that will be the center piece for my altar is a painting I made in a hand carved wood tray of the Virgin of Guadalupe. It took me more than 5 months to finished it, I painted almost everything but I left the face plain until today that I felt it was the right time to bring her in my painting.
