Neptune’s Chariot is on a Cruise!

Natalia-Neptunes Chariot-VOSTENAK

I was so delighted when out of the blue a collector friend sent a photo of herself while she is wearing one of my neckpieces! Natalia’s neckpiece, Neptune’s Chariot, is from the Pearl : Essense Collection and features 23K gold leaf on steel with an opalized ammonite doubling as the chariot gliding over a wave of pearls. It’s so perfect because she is wearing it while on a cruise!

Natalia’s polished steel and pearl earrings are also from one of my collections, Vines & Tendrils. I like the combo of the two different collections being worn together. Both feature pearls that allows for them to work together beautifully.

With the bodice of her dress being adorned with pearls, I am thrilled for her styling of my jewelry . . . soooo cool! It’s as though they were all made for each other.

Natalia may be better known to others as Dr. Natalia Stingley, a certified health coach at Stingley Chiropractic and Wellness in Mill Valley CA; 792-290-1923.

Thank you Natalia for sending me such joy! This made my day!

Sculptural Art Jewelry for Your Home

We’ve typically discussed the feminine resilience portrayed through the soft curves of Valerie’s sculptural art jewelry, but for the next couple of posts, allow us a brief diversion into another realm of her sculptural art–jewelry for your home.  Each piece represents the freely flowing water found in waterfalls, rivers, streams and oceans.

From the adornment of your private home to the enhancement of a corporate setting, Valerie’s sculptures cause the eye to linger just a little longer. This lingering can be good for business and emotional health. It can offer a respite from the ordinary or pressures of the day.

Most homes and offices have walls adorned with art, but owners often forget that availing a blank wall as a canvas for exquisite sculptures can lend a new dimension to their home or business.

Currently, VOSTENAKstudios is represented with several pieces at the lovely Titus Contemporary Gallery in Carmel. (San Carlos Between 5th & 6th, Carmel, CA 93921)

In this series, Valerie describes:
“I seek to capture the power and the energy in the movement of ocean waves. The way it roars toward the shore and breaks into a wild display on rocky cliffs, laps at a sandy beach, or tangles the sea grasses below the surface.

Viewing the flowing steel as one views a mandala or walks a labyrinth, it becomes a point of meditation, perhaps a reference in the discovery of Self.”
