I have found myself inspired by the way she mixes elements and saturates her pieces. I would like to be able to achieve such perfect compositions with many elements. I am also drawn to the tribal feel, the sense that the pieces would be worn by a contemporary shaman.
With my new series, Synesthesia, I have been integrating a lot of gemstone elements. Some how, compared to how much

In certain forms of synesthesia, perceiving letters and numbers (grapheme–color synesthesia) or hearing musical sounds (music–color synesthesia) will lead to the unusual additional experiences of seeing colors. Behavioral and functional neuroimaging experiments have demonstrated that these color experiences lead to changes in behavioral tasks and lead to increased activation of brain regions involved in color perception, thus demonstrating their reality, and similarity to real color percepts, albeit evoked through a non-standard route.
I have been making a lot more necklaces with multicolour gemstones. I love semiprecious stones and colorful freshwater pearls, they are so powerful and beautiful and full of colour and life. I must thank fancifuldevices for her post and inspiration about colour.

I am still thinking in color gradations and making pieces with lots of gemstones, like this blue and purple extravaganza featuring amethyst, opalite, peacock freshwater pearls, blue freshwater pearls, deep blue Swarovski crystals and two vintage rhinestone pieces. Now in my Etsy shop.
