I always had an interest in and admiration for Art Deco design. In the early 1900s designers began to use crystal, semiprecious stones and enamel in different colors and geometrical shapes. The approach to jewelry design was thus changed, and from that time on, what counted were beauty and craftsmanship rather than cost and carats.
What intrigues me the most in Art Deco period jewelry is the use of pure geometry, simplified lines and textures. I love the look of dynamic symmetry, and I love to make necklaces that dangle.
You can buy this Art Deco inspired one-of-a-kind necklace on my online jewelry shop.
In this “Roaring Art Deco” necklace I mixed angular geometric blue Chalcedony stones with manmade Hemalyke rounds, natural Botswana Agate oval cabochons and silk tassels. I used triangular shapes made from glass seed beads to go with interesting shapes of semiprecious stones.

Cape Cod jewelry collection by Ezartesa.
There on Cape nature offers huge inspiration. Sandy shores, spectacular sunsets, magical waves, mild sea breezes, beautiful seashells and stunning gardens are creative force in my Cape Cod jewelry collection.
My self and locals love carefree lifestyle on Cape Cod and have a special connection with the outdoors. It seems everybody appreciate simple things: running barefoot on the beach, fishing, gathering seashells and colorful stones, spending time with friends and family.
I wanted to ensure that nothing in this Cape Cod jewelry collection is “too pretty” and every piece contains a story and joyful memories. Beauty, not luxury, is what I value.
You will find my Cape Cod jewelry collection in a kaleidoscope of hues; subtly shifting colors one to another. I use very wearable palette of colors (black, cream, sand, brown, grey, sea green, ocean blue) in my absolutely one of a kind designs. Seashell necklaces, nautical bracelets, coral earrings would go with every thing you already have in your closet, from a pair of jeans and a tee-shirt to more formal, sophisticated wardrobe. My designs could be easily paired with other gold or silver jewelry.
Three cornerstones for my Cape Cod jewelry designs are: extraordinary craftsmanship, highest-quality materials, and timeless design. I want people feel good wearing my jewelry.
Feel unique and special.

In “Blue Heron Song” Watercolor Painting I using overlapping effect of shapes to achieve the effect of depth on a flat surface, and I placed main objects (two birds) low on the painting plane appear them to be closer to the viewer. The illusion of depth is created by changing color, value and detail. In the distant objects (trees) contrast between light and dark is reduced, colors are darker…
I think this painting strike a balance between reality and illusion.
This painting would work in a Florida vacation home, California coastal house, Marin County home, a New York City apartment, or beach house in Cape Cod; it could be the centerpiece of the bedroom or living room.

I am very excited to share with you, that my handmade necklace “Reef” won Grand Prize Gold Medal in Fire Mountain Gems and Beads (seed bead) jewelry contest.
This necklace is my favorite; it’s bold but very wearable and versatile. It took me many hours to create it. Best of all, I had fun in the process.
For me beading is an art that explores the blending of color and texture, searching balance between shapes and forms. I love experimenting with new materials and produce age-old beauty; rather gold or silver, glass seed beads are used to create a unique one of kind necklaces, bracelets and earrings. This departure from traditional metals allows for a synthesis between texture and form. Additionally, the use of glass seed beads leads to coloration that would rarely be pursued or achieved with metals.
I am particularly interested in the matching of color between stones, creating thematic
When I design, for me are very important good structure, balance and composition of stones in jewelry peace. I love combining different color natural stones and crystals, and making beautiful color palette. When you first being to select stone combinations you will inevitably be drawn to your favorite stones, but if they do not enhance one another in your intended jewelry design, they will not look an attractive to eye. I think the success for good jewelry design is three factors: color, form, and texture.
One of the questions I am most frequently asked is “Where do you get your ideas from?”
For me, nature is the most important creative force in my work. Inspiration may come from observing an individual flower, leaf pattern, or the much wider picture of an interesting landscape, seascape. The interesting people, inspiring places , the sandy beaches of cape cod, and all creatures of underwater world – all have influence both my life and my art. If myhandmade jewelry could talk, it would sound like the stories and poems about beauty of nature and human being.
I think beadwork can be enjoyed either as striking art-to-wear jewels or appreciated and displayed as independent art objects that possess the ageless qualities and beauty of heirloom treasures.

I am inspired by flowers for their beauty and stunning colors.
For me, flowers represent femininity. I love black and turquoise color combination. Black onyx- classic stone and Turquoise is one of the oldest gemstones in the world, and always in style.

I use nature as my muse. This chic oversize bracelet I created for the modern woman- sophisticated, confident, and inspired by the world around her.
I like to combine texture and color, using seed beads to create luxurious and exotic patterns.
I always was inspired by underwater worlds, especially by coral reefs - one of the most inspiring creations of life on earth.
For me coral reefs symbolize the essence of the sea. With this watercolor painting I wanted to create a fantasy painting of corals and sea creatures. I painted American Lobster next to giant gorgonian coral simply just because I liked color combination of yellow, oranges, reds, and greens. It looks like lobster is captivated by the beauty of coral too, and he is reaching with his lobster claws the flowers of giant coral.
Two seahorses symbolize relationship and love.
I would frame this painting in simple black frames with white mat.
I imagine this painting in beach house bedroom, white, cream cottage style bed, and black bench toped with teal, red, brown, white pillows…
Available to purchase original watercolor painting.
If you are people who like to bring friends to your beach house, perfection is not an option. Beach house should be inviting, accessible and approachable.
For young families with children the solution:
- Strong colors and sturdy fabrics.
- Playfulness should rule at the beach house. Play with lines, strips, florals and plaid.
- Cover the chairs with linen fabric and anchor the room with an informal rug (you could start the room from the rug, look what colors in it and then, go crazy with color selection).
- Define the dining room with bright and playful floral painting.
- Hang funny motivational dog poster, cat poster and pictures in your children room.
I take painting and drawing art of wild horses seriously and passionately.
I think the understanding of the principals of light and shadow is a very important step in drawing and painting, and true understanding of light and shade comes with the practice of doing it, and of cause understanding it.
In figure drawing art, confidence is very important. In this drawing the outlines, features and shadows beautifully meld together.
I imagine this drawing for blue brown décor, with rustic details and old classic furniture. This art for home decor available for sale.
3 Spectacular black and white nude woman figure fine art prints.
I chose 3 spectacular black and white beautiful female bodies drawings for people who are fascinated by human figure art.
I love to paint and draw nude woman figures. I always was inspired by the human form; which displays harmony, ecstasy, fantasy, mystery and spectacular beauty.
These two drawings of beautiful females are done in charcoal on paper.
This fantasy drawing is done in pencil on paper.
What can be more universal among our fellow beings than emotion and desire? The challenge for me is to tell the story, reveal some part of secret, but not tell all, leaving room for the imagination.
These 3 black and white nude beautiful females drawing are available for sale as fine art prints, canvas prints and originals.
I am very inspired by the sea world that holds many secrets. My painting and jewelry collection this year was all about the water and all creatures deep within the ocean.
For a long time I had in my mind a dream to make a big bold beaded necklace of Labradorite stone. I made a sketch of necklace “Reef”, and I knew that this stone was a perfect for design.
I love Labradorite natural stone; it has grey background with exotic green and blue flashes of color. Labradorite- enhances energy flaw, increases intuition and makes magic happen.
I had chosen grey, moss, olive green, yellow green, blue zircon silver lined seed beads, natural Labradorite beads, Swarovski pearls, Czech glass beads, Labradorite cabochons and Swarovski crystals that gives the necklace that magic sparkle. This necklace was very labor intensive and it’s a very special peace.
Wearing this necklace you will feel like celebrity.

How to decorate with floral paintings
When I think of art I think of beauty, I fill the canvas with flowers to express an abundance of life and strong feeling. Flowers are a daily reminder of beauty,
decorating with floral paintings is a lot of fun. In traditional monochromatic, light color interior, choose neutral tone flower paintings.
Give a little bit a drama to the room with grouping them together, group of three or two monochromatic floral paintings in any room is dramatic and fresh.
Striking color paintings of flowers offers an artful way to bring blooms into any room.
I imagine this sunflowers painting next to green sofa topped with pillows in sunny shades of yellow and apricot to reflect colors of sunflowers.
Art collectors asking me - give me some ideas on interior designs.
When you feel sadness or stress, think pink, candy colors like a sweet treat can help to feel uplifted and soothe anxiety. Pink could bring to the room not just warmth and sweetness, but and sophistication.
I created this floral watercolor painting at one cold winter day, when I daydreamed about my summers spent at my grandmother’s house. I remembered my grandmother’s gorgeous garden of peonies. The most beautiful ones were red and candy pink peonies.
When I started creating painting I decided to put red peonies in first plane in more detailed style, and pink in background in more abstract style.
With this modern art flower abstract painting you would create warmth and excitement to living room, and sweeten up your dining room. Pair pink with black or brown to give a room little bit drama and sophistication.
Bold Statement Necklace.
Hand crafted work from the past or from remote cultures is a recurring influence in my jewelry.
I feed my imagination on old work, and I working direct from nature, making as many sketches as I can.
For this necklace I used Onyx (traditionally been used to banish grief) and Tiger-eye cabochons. Natural turquoise jewelry - December birthstone, enhances prosperity and optimistic outlook, and Citrine (has traditionally used to attract wealth) beads, Swarovski crystals, Czech glass.
I used black mate seed beads to give necklace hint of the exotic. I think this necklace looks powerful and makes a bold statement.
Black Onyx Tiger Eye Necklace.
Native American inspired painting
I always loved to paint horses, because they remind me my childhood and wonderful days spent at my grandparent’s farm. A horse for me symbolizes a power and strength. Before this work, I always painted horses in movement or some action, but this time I wanted to paint a simple picture.
I am inspired by Native American art simplicity and bold colors, but especially I inspired by the Acoma people of New Mexico bold patterns. In this painting I used limited palette of colors: Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Red, Raw Umber, Green and Ivory Black.
Artsy Art bag for art lovers
I created this drawing for my zazzle shop. I decided to put this design on a simple canvas bag and t-shirt.
I purchased the bag, and I love the size and style. I just used it yesterday for my groceries, and it held up well. I am excited about using this bag for my papers, books, to go to library, market….
If you need a cute, artsy bag to carry your groceries or just about everything, it’s good choice.

How to Create Peaceful environment for your home
I think every home should be peaceful and relaxing.
You may feel more relaxed when you surround yourself with objects that remind you about something nice. You may feel more peaceful and centered when you surround yourself with objects that express your cultural heritage. For some, a cozy and colorful cushion, soft blanket and interesting artifacts gives warmth, comfort and reassurance.
Peaceful environments are reminder where we have been and where we are going. I think, our favorite artwork serve us as symbols of safety and bring reassurance during stressful times.
Put your favorite works of art where you spend the most of your time when you relaxing, reading book, listening music….
Make important, meaningful symbols the focal point of your rooms. Arrange your family photos on your office table, treasured heirloom or a favorite painting next to fire place. Forget what is beautiful for others; choose colors and meaningful things that are uplifting for you and your family.
I did this commission painting for my clients; they have a wonderful, very artistic house, beautiful and peaceful inside and out.

The best way to preserve jewelry
