MEXICAN SILVER 925 RINGS





So happy to announce that I will be selling also Mexican Silver 925, and here 3 rings on sale, they are filled with natural flowers already dried, preserved for ever as rings, with flowers handpicked by me on Iowa lands. This rings are a collaboration with the Mexican Artisan Hugo Akbal, he works with precious Mexican Silver 925 since years and each piece of the rings is hand welded piece by piece.

Is amazing to wear nature and luxury at the same time.

BLUE BIRD " ENJOY NATURE, LET THE ADVENTURE BEGIN

























I painted this little blue bird that I saw on Instagram, the original photo was taken by Eduardo Rivera, a photographer and odontology student from Tijuana, and I made my version from the original pic, I added lot of textures with painted leaves. An the final result is a cool print. The print is available on my etsy.

FIRST AUTUMN AT DES MOINES

































I made some shots in the fall, photographs of my garden and near my home.
Autumn was very pretty, I did not have all the photos that I wished buy I enjoyed all the colors, specially red-orange trees (not showed here), is amazing how much beauty we can find on dried nature. Even when green turns black.
