This week I'm very pleased to feature Anastasija, whose store Lightkeeping is one of the first shop I came across on Etsy, and one of all-time my favourite shops. It's great name for the shop, as light, colour and energy buzzes from these beautiful pieces of lampwork, semi precious and wooden jewellery. There are stunning colour combinations, pretty quirky pieces, and a fusion of form and light in each of the pieces which is truly artistic.
Here are a few of my favourites:
These blue and white lampwork earrings are just so pretty, and they reveal something of the traditions which this talented crafter has absorbed, taking their inspiration from Russian blue and white Gzhel ceramics.
While we are on lovely shades of blue, this Day at the Beach bracelet and earrings set also took my eye. It's a collaboration piece using lampwork beads from another self representing jewellery artist. Those turquoises are the perfect thing for summer, and also for winter when you need a reminder of the summer!
The colour of these lovely lilly earrings and pendants is truly beautiful - they are fire agate, and if you've ever seen that stunning semi precious stone before you will recognise the transluscent tones in here.
In a different colour palette, here are the Funky Swirl earrings in teal and green. Those colours just pop with each other. Very retro, very pretty!
My last pick, but I could have picked everything really! These earrings are hand painted wooden beads, so lovely and light. I think this folk art style is really trendy at the moment, and these would suit anyone.
