Oh Esthernita,

This is so incredible and does look very 1900s Art Nouveau. I see the perfect definition of a woman, very ethereal, soft and curvaceous, at the same time possessing the strenth of steel!! :)

I'm so glad you are home safely!! Has the snow begun to melt??

This piece has such beautiful movement to it Esther. It makes me think of the ebb and flow of the tide, and the bubbles that remain! Gorgeous colors also!

Wow Esther, such a beautiful piece....though not surprising you make such amazing pieces. I know what you mean about the sore fingers, I have this wire as well and yes, it is hard work...but worth it....I absolutely love the colours.

These get better and better each time I see them Esther! They are so intricate and delicate, yet strong. I love the colors too. And it looks like you unearthed it from a trunk in an attic in a forgotten little old house on the outskirts of town. I would have said that it once belonged to a princess of a certain era.
Lovely, as always.
Enjoy the day!
Profitez de la journee!

Oh, Esther, how lovely this necklace is! And I love the greys too!Fabulous! What a treat for our eyes! But I know how hard the work is and how many sacrifices an artist is doing for his/her art! And this IS ART, my sweet friend!
Lots of love, Sanda xx

Esther - this is magical...I love the filigree look of the necklace - who knew annealed wire could look so good in the hands of a very talented artist.

I agree earrings would be lovely...speaking of earrings I am enjoying the pair you sent to me...xo Julie
