Over the past few months, I've renewed with something I used to do when I was little.... 
watercolor paintings :)

I've done some oil paintings (just a few) in the past, and various types of crafts where I'd paint wood with acrylic paints, etc.... but maybe it's the tie-dye hippie in my soul, 
I've always been so incredibly attracted to the cool effects of watercolor paints.

So today, I though I'd share one of my recent paintings with you,
and how it inspired me to create the earrings that I'm showcasing here.

See The Light Watercolor Painting by Nathalie Lesage
"See The Light" watercolor painting by Nathalie Lesage
This is a rather bold 'in your face' kind of sun, with stormy and happy colors in the sky. It was meant that way. This is a more raw, 'primal' painting, because the message that I wanted to spread in the world is very basic, but powerful:

The energy that you "radiate' out into the world comes from the core of your soul.

If you feel that your energy is lacking, weak, or negative, etc. Make time for yourself...
Rest, meditate, do some basic yoga, stretch, take some quiet time, breathe.

 My painting inspired me to create this earrings design:

The energy of life in the circles, the 'rays' of sunshine in the hemp cords where I've tied tiny bright yellow glass beads, the stormy and happy colors of the sky in the center smaller flat discs. 
Energy, positive and negative,
can be channeled and be put to work in a very uplifting way.

These cool frosted (etched) artisan lampwork glass discs come from Two Sisters Designs on Etsy.
Simple wrap of Sterling Silver, knotted hemp cords and suspended on Titanium Ear Wires.
Very light and, dare I say it... radiant? ;)
You can find these earrings HERE on my website.

It's your turn... go forth... and...  RADIATE!! :)
Have a beautiful day!
