Frida Kahlo is my greatest source of inspiration, beautiful even with her accentuated hairs on the eyebrows, for me it’s a true example of courage to follow. In this necklace you can see the prevalence of green in the eyes, in the flowers and in the papier-mâché pearl that I inserted together with the gem.Above my sister-in-law, Mara, she is wearing my wood necklace. She lives in Chianciano with my brother Claudio, with (from left to right their sons Gabriele, Cesare and Luca). My father is the bearded one. I am with Rugo at the bottom. I miss Mamma and Tita so much in the picture, although maybe if I look closely I can see them with us.There are times when you want the little girl with big eyes is close to your heart, and others times when you prefer wearing an important message for you, enriched by the luminescence of the gold leaf.When I painted the original picture from which I got the wooden necklace, I decided for an electrifying smile and a magnetic look. Here we talk about a brave woman, who wants to give herself completely to her cause without any thoughts.
The meaning is Carefree not to give the idea of leisure, completely the opposite…! I wish this Frida to be the emblem of the Joy and Determined person, but sweetly and above all without prejudice. Who wears my Frida will start to cultivate so many emotions, to positively affect in all her future…!Above you can see the side of the gem with my signature and the gold leaf around the 8mm hole from which my original rope with three positions goes through. Sometime you can still use your favorite gold chain and turn it into a key ring.
Along with the main wood you choose the color of another paper-mache gem. The pearl is made luminescent by glitter and resin. I realize this with paper scraps. This is a true prayer or mantra to be repeated every day until your dream will come true.This is two necklaces in one because it is double-face. This kind of necklace is still in the testing phase, but I’am more and more satisfied. The wood on which I realize the gems is rare, I choose it on the beach and it must be lighter and the more resistant.
After having purified it I write on positive messages and meanings. On the other side I apply an high quality print. Resin is the final touch that makes it look like porcelain.
The wood gem is big but it is also light. I believe it’s nice to wear it both during winter and summer time to protect us every day on our path.
Necklace in cotton rope has no hooks but only nodes and wooden beads as stationary length. There are 3 lengths.
– Gem Entrance hole diameter 9mm – 3/8 inch
– Cord length: is 83 cm / 33 inches.
– Gem size: 6×5,5 cm (Size may vary in function of the irregularity of the wood)
– Thickness 1.5cm / 2,5 x 2,5 inch – thick 1/2 inch
THE MEANING OF THE WHITE GOAT
My White Goat is joyful and pure. He does not see barriers or limits and tends to go to improvised places. Synonym of Capriciousness and Carefree.
This attitude indicates a great love of Freedom and a willingness to face danger in order to defend it. It has good adaptability and eats everything, but it’s not submissive and is therefore a nice stimulus for liberation from inner chains.
When I look back to 2012 I understand however that everything changed…! I started to comb my hair, I started to believe and paint pictures that invite people to believe in dreams, make experiments every day, I’m realizing beautiful strange jewelry to wear. Yes I’m grateful… 🙂
