The Abstract Artist

<p>SSxGD update 👀</p>

<p>Not only do I have inspiration from the amazing Dendritic Agate in our #ssxgd collaboration, I am also totally spoilt by Ellen’s silversmithing designs!</p>

<p>It was important for me to incorporate silver leaf into these exclusive pieces, so that there was cohesion with her work too!</p>

<p>We have set out on this collection right from the start, to bring you something rather special… Stay tuned for more news this week. 🖤🤍🖤</p>

<p>The BIG Reveal: <br/>
The SSxGD collaboration stone is<br/>
Dendritic Agate!<br/>
🖤🤍🖤🤍🖤</p>

<p>🖤We have been so inspired and excited about creating a limited edition of our creations for you. Ellen has been busy making 6 stunning necklaces that showcase these beautiful stones.<br/>
For the full range of Dendritic Agate being used by Ellen, pop over to @gracefuldeviant  to check the latest post!</p>

<p>🤍I have been very busy creating 6 original artworks for you! <br/>
As an artist I have been spoilt with inspiration. I’m presented with wintery landscapes, trees & ferns and pure abstract patterns. Working with a limited pallette has been great fun…plus I’ve added my trademark textures and a few extra flourishes as well! </p>

<p>🖤Dates for product release coming soon, plus we are announcing a HUGE giveaway…You’re in for a treat!</p>

<p><br/>
FYI<br/>
🤍Dendritic Agate, aka Tree Agate is usually colorless, white, or grey and has tree- or fern-like inclusions of iron or manganese, called dendrites. Source countries include Brazil, China, India, Australia and a few more besides.</p>

<p>🖤Dendritic Agate is known as the Stone of Plentitude. It brings abundance and fullness to all areas of life. It has been valued greatly over centuries and has even been found with artifacts of Neolithic people, where it was believed to be used as healing amulets.</p>

<p>Black and white vibes for Monday🤍🖤</p>

<p>Fab start to the week working hard on the exclusive collection for #ssxgd #collaboration …</p>

<p>It has been an absolute joy creating these delicate textures. Adding the colours has brought these pieces alive! I really can’t wait to share them with you. 🤍🖤</p>

<p>I hope you are also following Ellen’s posts @gracefuldeviant. You can clearly see from both of us, the consideration and care taken for every piece we create.</p>

<p>Stay tuned as later this week we’ll be revealing the name of the stones that have so inspired this collection.🤍🖤</p>

<p>And yes I know I shouldn’t wear my best Smokey quartz ring while painting…I’m such a messy puppy 😂</p>
