day of the jelly fish

Remem­ber I men­tioned that I bought a super awe­some neck­lace from City of Craft the oth­er day? This is it, the jel­ly fish!

 

Isn’t it spec­tac­u­lar? It’s like a water droplet with a tiny jel­ly fish in it :D (it’s all made of glass — when I showed it to peo­ple every­one asked me if it were a real jel­ly fish. No jel­ly fish was harmed in the mak­ing of this, I assure you.) It’s made by Tosca Ter­an, a local glass and met­al artist (I am hop­ing to take a class with her one day!). Nev­er seen any­thing like this before. So after cir­cling back to the booth sev­er­al times I final­ly bought it. 

And then it inspired me to make a paint­ing of jel­ly fish.

 

It’s paint­ed on the back cov­er of an old book. See?

 

An old book called The Trum­pet of the Swan by E. B. White. I love the cov­er with the writer’s sig­na­ture in gold foil.

 

The water stain on the low­er right cor­ner was already there when I found the book. Kind of goes with the oth­er two jel­ly fish. Also has fab­u­lous green end papers :D

 

Hope your week is filled with new inspi­ra­tions!
