Inspired by jewelry - Artsy Wednesday

 
 
 
Looking for a "firm hand shake", look no furter - denne krabbe gav et "fast håndtryk"
This weeks challenge in Artsy Wednesday is Inspired by jewelry. But I don’t wear that much jewelry any longer, but when I do I go for the more untraditional things in my drawer.
I decided a pendant made of amber and a crab claw – two of many things that symbolizes the North Sea, that I’m lucky enough to live close to. Amber is called the gold of the North, google it to learn more about it’s fascinating story. Crab claws are a delicacy IMO even better than the slightly fatter lobster meat, and we love to eat it and serve it to our guests too. Normally they are quite black on the upper side of the claw, and that’s how I painted mine in acrylic colors over China Glaze Sky High-Top. The top coat is Seche Vite.
Check out what the other girls in Artsy Wednesday did in this weeks challenge
Michelle - Lab Muffin,  Alanna - Pretty Purple Polish, Tif - Polished Genious, Lyndsey - Nails by Ms. Lizard, (not this week: Melanie - Nail & Polish), Jessica - Beauty Gnome,  Emily - An Accent Nail, Kamen - Kaka Beauty Blog, Catrine - Unnakednails

Denne uges udfordring i Artsy Wednesday er inspireret af et smykke. Jeg burger nu til dags sjældent smykker, men når jeg gør, så vælger jeg som regel noget af det mere utraditionelle i min skuffe.
Jeg valgte et vedhæng i rav og krabbeklo, to ting der for mig blandt andet symboliserer Vesterhavet, som jeger så heldig at bo tæt ved. Krabbekløer er efter min mening en endnu mere lækker spise end den lidt federe hummer, og vi elsker det her i huset. Normalt er kløerne sorte på oversiden, så derfor malede jeg min klo sådan. Jeg brugte akrylfarver over den smukke blå China Glaze Sky High-Top, og toplakken er Seche Vite.

  2. Jeg var godt nok lige nødt til at læse teksten, for det var ikke ligefrem jewlery jeg tænkte på da jeg så billederne ;-) Men du skriver jo også selv "de lidt utraditionelle" :-)
    Det ser vildt fedt ud, det du har malet på neglene - det ligner nærmest sådan et nærfoto af en "natur" ting så man rigtig kan se hvordan det ser ud på tæt hold :-p
