How Lucky Am I?

This absolutely fabulous piece of art was done by Ester Orloff of E Makes Art, and I was lucky enough to win it.
During the One World One Heart blogging event, organized by Lisa Swifka, hundreds of bloggers chose something, usually their own creations, to giveaway. Then all we had to do was spend a bit of time blog hopping around the world, leaving comments for all the wonderful bloggers and artists out there. At the end, we just chose a random number out of our hundreds of comments, and Voila!, a winner!
Anyway, more about Esther - she is a stay at home Mom, and a talented artist who loves mixed media, photography, and even making the occasional piece of jewelry. All of her work is beautiful, and if I had to chose one word to describe her pieces, it would be 'calming'.
Here are some samples of her jewelry. Truly unique and wonderful pieces. Click here to see one of my other favourite pieces, besides the one I won, of course.
Take a bit of time, maybe with some tea, and pay Esther a visit. For me, it felt like a little vacation, and as with all good vacations, there is inspiration in the end.
