ArtFire Collection: A Spirally Sort of Collection by bluetina

I love spirals... for one, they are magical !

Their shape draws on one of the most primitive symbols in our existence... the circle being the first and foremost. It is, in essence, the motion of life itself and in petroglyphic times was one of the depictions for the sun.

ArtFire Collection extravaganza continues and today's offering is themed around spirals... A Spirally Sort of Collection curated by bluetina...

Feast your eyes on such marvelous things... there are too many marvels here to only have one favorite... what's a girl gotta do ? I especially adored signsofspirit's Spiral of Newgrange... a triple celtic knot carved from red cedar... in fact I have to admit I personally lust for something out of their studio... sigh.

Check out A SPIRALLY SORT OF COLLECTION on ArtFire.com HERE because then you will be able to gaze on all these lovely products and visit each item & studio to your heart's content.

I am so grateful to have been included in this Collection, one of Brizel Handcrafts' Silk Tapestry Table Pouches...

... "Winter Spiral, a Silk Tapestry Table pouch and fiber art meditation bag for a spiritual sacred space. A perfect holder for those personal ceremony accessories, ritual altar items and divination tools... Winter Spiral makes an ideal tarot card holder and dream journal keeper- a divine elemental gift for any occasion.

This unique Brizel Silk Tapestry Table Pouch featuring a spiral, is made of handcrafted variegated banana silk yarn in reds, cinnamon browns & vanilla creams; contoured by primary colored silk sari red yarn. The design, colors and motifs have been reversed en verso. It is embellished with large vanilla chocolate spiral buttons at the back which secure its closure flap."

I immensely enjoy making Silk Tapestries... please drop by my ArtFire studio, Brizel Handcrafts, to see the products that are available for purchase and thanks so much for the lovely feature !

Of course, it was my turn to rummage for spirals and the destination for my curiosity was none other than the curator's studio, bluetina...

Blue Murano Glass Silver Sterling Cage Earrings

"Vivid, iridescent blue Italian Murano glass beads in sterling silver cages. The sterling silver chains below hold Swarovski crystals in complementary colours that sparkle in the light. The ear wires and all other components are sterling silver. These earrings are most unusual ! They are the only pair there will ever be, so grab them while you can !"

Tina is a Britisher living in sunny Spain... "I use silver, copper, gold filled, vermeil, semi precious beads, freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals, porcelain, good quality glass and other interesting things! I enjoy finding new combinations and ways of putting things together. I don't start with a drawing - the pieces just seem to grow by themselves into what they want to be ! My little slogan is "I never make the same thing twice!" which means that all my pieces are unique, never to be repeated and one of a kind."

Hop on over to Tina's ArtFire studio to peruse through her work-
its fun, its colorful, itsssss bluetina !
