Will Sunday, Nov 18 2018

A simple little word, will, yet so hard to muster up at times.  Success is very temporary in the face of great tragedy.  After the death of my son our health continued to decline and eventually an air test revealed what was killing all of us on 59 Division Street.  Nothing could stop what happened and yet no one helped our inevitable loss of everything.  Even my sons’ ashes had to be discarded, contaminated.  We have worked very hard during it all; even sleeping on the streets didn’t deter our determination to find our way back to life.

When an artist can not create he or she becomes depressed, when depressed an artist can not create.  Another Holiday season is upon us and I wish it to be the last spent in sadness.  My son took his life just before Christmas and my Birthday as well as his.

I am taking this miserable existence and turning it into a Christmas miracle.  We have already made the new website and am setting up the online shop.  It is difficult to ask for help but that is what I have had to do as of late.

There is always hope if you have the will to sustain it.  Will is a mighty word backed by great action if you have the courage to wield it.

Please never give up for if you are an artist you are in the company of God quite often, He whisperers ideas to you all the time.  His will.

Praying for a Miracle

The Angelic Series by Marelle Wednesday, Mar 2 2016 

“Only One for the One and Only You.”

Inspiration:
My inspiration for this collection was to create Ethereal Angelic pieces to add to my Angel Series.  It was imperative that each piece frame the face beautifully.  Every necklace and headpiece I create is to be custom fitted as to compliment, not compete with one’s outfit or hairstyle.  Every piece is guaranteed to be one of a kind.

Every piece I create, including this series, is inspired by the materials I am using.  I never sketch a design. Rather, I let the pieces unfold into an accessory of fine art.  I only use quality vintage trinkets and treasures so no two pieces are ever the same.  That was my biggest inspiration when creating my line….give new life to previously loved, vintage treasures.  It is true that an object holds onto the energy of its previous owners so great care is taken when acquiring these vintage treasures.

Depending on the pieces I am using and the surface they are being adhered to determines what method I will use to attach them.  I often work on several pieces at one time.  Laying pieces of treasure, sometimes taking hours, deciding on just the right placement for my canvas.  Whether that canvas be a purse, hat, or an actual canvas.  I would suggest to any gal to experiment with a brooch, scarf, a little something to set your accessories apart. And always be up to trying on your jewellery in new ways. I’ve had people use my necklaces as head wraps. I guess what I would like to say is be you in every sense. Your fashion is a reflection of your fabulous individuality, so flaunt it!

Other photographers has been amazing me with their vision when shooting some of my accessories.  This one is absolutely my favorite by Anna Nicholas from the UK.  She used my feather sash as a head piece and it looked amazing.  I actually made these into some postcards.  This is why I love having these amazing photographers shoot my pieces, I get so inspired by their work.
