This Week’s Theme: Jewelry
Custom jewelry designer, Ann Marie Cianciolo, of AnnsJewelry.com, fabricates her jewelry by hand using silver, gold, or copper with precious and semi-precious stones. All of her pieces are creatively unique. I especially like this stack of two rings made with rose and white gold, topaz and diamonds. The spirals give it an added boost of vibrant energy. What a fun piece this would be to wear!
From her home page:
Upon close examination, everyday life can be extraordinary. It’s the hidden humor, duality, and mischief in daily life that inspire my sculptural one of a kind jewelry, infusing it with surprise. The unlikely juxtaposition of mundane objects in my work depict an absurd miniature world. Things just seem funnier when they are tiny . . . I invite you to take a closer look.

Inspiration for Today
“End-of-the-world stories tend to ring true. I’ve always been drawn to them, but as I wrote my own, I found surprising pleasure in creating a world that is so radically changed, yet where there’s so much meaning and value in every small and ordinary thing we have, and take for granted: hot showers, enough food, friends, routines.” ~ Karen Thompson Walker
