What Makes You Happy? Love My Art Jewelry August Art Spark

The color red.

I gravitate towards it without thinking.

It warms my heart and makes me smile. It makes me feel alive.

On days when I am down, I put on red lipstick and the world seems brighter.

A red sweater in the cold winter warms me despite the temperature.

My house has touches of it throughout, so I can go into any room and feel it radiating through me, lifting me up from where I am, despite circumstances.

Life and love.


The color red.

These beautiful poppy lampwork beads are from Tanya McGuire, and the pewter leaf is from Lynn Davis, and they hang from a soldered copper chain I made to go with them.

I know what you mean. Red is such a wonderfully uplifting color. I love reds in the winter, even after Christmas has passed. Your necklace is simply gorgeous!

This is just such a great design, Miss Molly. I love that color. It would have been the perfect necklace to go with my red dress I wore this weekend to my class reunion. I love the way the cascade of flowers is constructed. This is a gorgeous piece of statement jewelry.
Enjoy the day!
