Goplana and Company


About this design:

Most of my life I have been drawn to a primitive art. this is my interpretation of it with a little icing. I need your honest opinion, should I post this on Etsy or not. Thank to all of you who inspired me to dust off my polymer clay and give it a try.

Components:

1) Goplana, Rock Crystal, Fluorite,Aquamarine from Lima. PC beads and bell, Sari silk handmade clasp and hammered ring with the salt and vinegar patina. 2) Yellow Agate,Fire Agate, Brown Agate, Carnelian from LB, PC bell and beads, hand made clasp and other findings. 3)Cape Amethyst, Pink Opal, Chrysoprase LB, Seagreen Agate with druzy fom my stash. Handmade copper findings and PC bells.

    You have posted so many wonderful pieces. My favorite is the one with the gold sari silk and the green floral pendant. They are all unique and beautifully done. You should definitely post!

    puppychick labratbecky says:

    You’re kidding, right? ;) You had BETTER post them on Etsy! The PC pieces look like something Ragged Robyn makes and I LOVE her stuff. :) I LOVE this style but making it doesn’t come naturally to me. I am glad it does for you!!! When you post them, please hold the first set for me…… I have a daughter (the French child) who might need to have that as a Christmas gift. :) Does that answer your question? :) !!!!

    Asia says:

    Yes, Becky it does, thank you so much, I love RR myself, but the price of her pieces is too hard to swallow, I might be posting tonight ?????

    puppychick labratbecky says:

    I know–I have had 3 of her pieces in a cart for over a month but I can’t justify the prices either.

    Granny Nancy says:

    Well, I like all of them but my fave is the 5th one. I like the multi-colored beads and the pendant is so unique. I adore the matching earrings.

    I love all of them! The only thing with me is the black (silk)? on the first necklace? kind of look strange . But on the whole beautiful creative pieces! :)

    Gail Layne says:

    Oh Asia! I just went on Etsy to buy the earrings in your second set but they’re too long for me. They’d hang past my collar bone. Please make a smaller version, I’m too short for these but I ADORE them! Btw, I rarely BUY jewelry for myself but these earrings really struck a chord. This whole series is just amazing. I always admire your pieces but you’ve gone to a whole new level. Wow!

  11. Asia
    Asia says:

    Gail do you mean the ones with carnelian and the pods, yes I can make you a smaller version, what length will be good for you, You will have to give me a week, as my job is quite demanding .

  12. Gail Layne
    Gail Layne says:

    Woohoo! Take your time! Could they be about half that size? Or is that too small?

    At first I couldn’t see what it was all about…then I realized: darn, its the ridiculously small screen on this laptop! Looking closer, I saw all the clever details. I’ve been following this blog for awhile without posting anything (one day soon I will post some of my designs, just not tonight, must go to sleep…), but I must agree with Gail, Asia, you really HAVE moved on to another level! Congrats!!! You seem to have been busy with the torch, and a lot of copper wire. Like that!! Keep the ideas flowing!

    Thank you so much everyone, Julia, that sari silk is actually sea green, I have always issues with light, you all are the best :D

    Rocknitjewelry says:

    I love this style jewelry too! There is another artist on etsy called LoveRoot. She does a similar style. I love her things and her prices are much lower than RaggedRobyn. Good luck with this new direction. Looks gorgeous.
