Focus on Life - week 5 - Capture our hearts.

Hello friends,

It has been a while between posts. Preparing my home for sale has kept me busy!

Today, I am joining in to  Focusing on Life - 52 photos- a photo a week throughout the year. The prompt for the week was 'capture our hearts'. I have interpreted this in a literal sense... so here are a few I found.....

A heart made from vintage velvet hanging on a cupboard in my daughter's room.

Hearts made from an old atlas... you can see more about these here.

A glass paperweight.. you know how I love my paperweights!

And because I missed out on joining in last week, here is a little something I made during the week....my first stone set in a sterling bezel which I made by following the instructions on a DVD by 
Lexie Erickson. ( The stone is a dendritic agate)

Last week was all about creating art... making jewellery is where my creative heart is at the moment, it is my art.

Here is a heart I made a while back from copper and resin.


And if you pop on over to the studio sublime you can check out all the other lovely hearts.

That's it from me today, folks,

have a good weekend,

First of all - your cab set in silver is just gorgeous! You did a fantastic job! I HAVE THAT DVD! I was not as successful as you! I am actually taking soldering class at the end of February 'cause I really want to master this technique! Also love your atlas peeking out amongst the hearts!

For your first bezel set stone that is incredible work! Gorgeous piece! Love the agate you found for it, they always look like an undersea world to me, each so different.

Tanya said...

All of those are wonderful hearts. I adore that last copper and resin pendant .. Amazing!

Really like the way your repurposed an old atlas to make a lovely reminder of your daughter's trip to Ireland. Thanks for the link on how you made it. Also your bezel is awesome.

Isn't it interesting how hearts suddenly appear all over your home when you start looking for them! You slowly collect them and then 'there they are' popping up all over! :))) LOVE the heart pendant!

All beautiful hearts. I especially like the ones you made (the atlas and the copper one). And your bezel for the stone is amazing! Definitely qualifies as art.

I am absolutely inspired by the map hearts and left a comment on that post! The jewelry pieces are stunning!

Cindy said...

Jenni, you sure found an incredible assortment of hearts for this week's prompt - from vintage velvet to atlas hearts! All great photos. Do you happen to collect paper weights? I recently became interested in Victorian paperweights that depict local town photos or images - I am seeing them quite frequently when I'm out antiquing.
