I had this idea and it came to fruition. I love art and I do a bit of painting on the side. It is a relaxing way for me to express myself and it is through the concept of painting and framing a picture that I wanted to “frame” a pretty little faceted stone. With a nice squarish piece of fossilized coral that had a perfect white background with a bit of sparkle, I added a faceted lemon smoky quartz to dangle in front of the “frame” – this came out more eye-catching than what I had imagined in my head. It’s unusual to have that happen. Typically, I have a hard time achieving what is drawn in my head and I accept the changes and adjustments that some designs require. This one surprised me.
There is a public exhibit getting ready to take place in my local town of Fayetteville, North Carolina. It is an open, non-juried exhibit which I appreciate so much. This enables all kinds of people who have creative abilities the opportunity to show their work. I am always surprised at the talent that comes out. So, the “Floating Lemon” which is what I am naming the piece is going to be exhibited for about a month and if it does not sell then it will be placed within the walls of my Etsy store. Fingers crossed. Pricing is at $130.00 with a gift box included.
