Something new is in the shop! I am so excited about these cheerful hand-painted Be Beautiful Bangles. Each bangle is one of a kind. I only made 17 of them so get them while you can! I am not sure I am going to continue to make these little lovelies.
Those of you who follow my blog know that this past spring I finished a gratitude project where I made 100 paintings for 100 people. I have grown and stretched myself as an artist.
Recently, on my artist retreat on the shore of Lake Superior, I tried a few new creative projects like painting wooden bangles (Thank you Jen!). It was so different from anything I have done before and so fun to be painting on something other than canvas. I loved it so much that when I got home I ordered more.
Each bangle has it’s own color story. I added a bright and contrasting color for the inside and stamped the words *You are Beautiful* as a reminder of that truth to wear throughout the day.
My friend, Aimee said that my bangles reminded her of Anthropologie! That made my day! She said she could see a collection of them hanging on twine.
As always, I poured tons of love and happiness into them. I believe that hand-made items created in a loving space continue to carry that energy. It is my intention that the bangles create beauty and brightness in the day of the wearer.
Yay! Be Beautiful!
These are beautiful, Lori. Oh how I would LOVE to wear one. I love seeing you expand your creativity more and more. You’re such an inspiration to me. Love you dearly.
I’m seriously in a panic I’m so excited over these… can’t wait to get mine!! I wish you’d open a Lori Portka storefront… oh the stacks of color everywhere… it would be wonderful!
Lori, your bracelets are beautiful…do you ship to Canada? How do I order? Sue
