Nina


SHE KNOWS.
So as I listened to her you tube mix, I pounded these out and lacquered them with a touch of chestnut patina and mica.


And I wear them for all my soul sisters.

  4. I have a short neck, so they have a tendency to stab me in the shoulder, but the next pairs could be adjusted!

  5. What a great song! I've never heard of it before but it's great!

    Love the earrings you made, which look super amazing on you! I like your smaller version. The ones she wore make my ear lobes hurt...

  7. I've been listening to Nina since I was 16 years old (I'm ahem..49 now) my mom had given me her album, Nina Simone Sings The Blues and it really did change me. When she sings Do I Move You? Yeah, she really does! I love, love,love your new earring...I can see how she is an inspiration...she is the best...so raw...yet sooo smooth!

  12. Those are so cool!!! I love the way the smaller ring turns inside the larger one. It's like a little mobile or a wind chime! And the long bar added to it gives it a nice line.

  15. Love the earrings and love your bright smile! Was so happy to see you are back on Etsy, now I just need to pull some money together so I can buy some of your gorgeous pieces! Also, I wanted to say I bought a few of your patina metal flowers (among other lovely pieces) and they were so much prettier than the pictures! Sending you lots of happy, peaceful, loving energy :)

  21. Hi Shannon - I had noticed a while back that your shop was closed. Sorry to hear that you have had a couple of awful months. Happy that your shop is open again and that you are creating your amazing pieces. Wishing you all the best for 2012.
