"Calm Seas Wild Mermaids"
by Cindy Esposito
Hello, my name is Cindy Rosalie Esposito and I want to share with you my passion for creating unique, handcrafted jewelry. I find my innermost happiness when creating these pieces. Doing what I love is therapy for my soul and this is translated into the designs of my jewelry. I try to accentuate the beauty of the gemstones I use by working with high quality materials. I use artisan glass lamp work beads from artists around the world, handmade polymer clay flowers, gemstone beads, freshwater pearls, gold plated brass, raw brass and mystic aura quartz. I spend a lot of time searching for unique finds to create special pieces. I truly believe in supporting other artists and their creations. I find inspiration in doing so and I believe it adds to the beauty of my collection. Shining through my creations is my love for mermaids. One of my favorite things to make are my wild mermaid earrings. I use .925 silver pins and hooks and raw brass mermaid charms that another artist makes for me.
As you can see, I am inspired by the ocean and all of its wonder and beauty. From this inspiration, I find myself using materials such as shells, sea glass and freshwater pearls. When I’m not making jewelry, I’m working on my award-winning recipes. I have a few that were published in Taste of Home Magazine and on their website. I have an undeniable passion to create amazing things whether it’s in the kitchen or in my jewelry studio. I hope you enjoy the jewelry as much as I enjoyed creating it.
If I can give anyone advice...
Be true to yourself and find what makes you the happiest and do it.
Believe in yourself because we all have special gifts God gave us and I believe there is an artist in each and every one of us.
