Jasper Cocoon Pendant

342 – Jasper Cocoon Pendant Mandala

Today I showcase a local artist and friend out of Alpine, Oregon. Jewelry artisan, Jan O’Banion, of Jan E O Jewelry, forged this powerful jasper and German silver pendant loaded with mandala-like shapes. I love the vibrant red of the jasper seeming to be protected within the dramatic silver cocoon.

336 – Jennifer’s Hummingbird Mandala

Continuing with the “showcasing local artists” theme, today I share with you this delightful acrylic painting by Corvallis artist and gallery owner, Jennifer Lommers. I love her whimsical poppies that shine with life and whimsy, welcoming the hummingbird home. This is one of my favorite paintings of Jennifer’s.
