Stormy Weather

The past several weeks in the US have been beset by very unsettling storms...severe thunderstorms that have dumped inches of water in a matter of minutes, tornadoes that have ripped through large areas and devastated whole communities and some mini-tornadoes that have hit small pockets in places that have never been touched by a twister. We have seen hailstorms with ice the size of golf balls and larger...I can't recall a spring season that has been wrought with so much stormy weather.

All of this inspired me to find something that could be a beautiful representation of these scary dreaded storms...I think I've been successful in choosing items designed by the members of the SATeam that may have been inspired by brooding, stormy skies, but that also display the promise of a beautiful rainbow after the storms.










Featuring artisan handmade creations by the Starving Artists jewelry Team, the SATeam members create handcrafted jewelry and beads. More information about our team and its current shop owner members can be found at SATEAM.etsy.com and here on ArtFire.

I have to admit I like storms when they aren't violent. These lovely works of art by SATeam members represent the best parts of stormy weather.

Hope those affected by the big storms are getting much needed assistance to see them through.

Any one of these pieces would brighten up any stormy day.

It wasn't that stormy here, but still I can relate ... you created the perfect image.

Very clever use of pieces to support this theme. I will look at these colors in a different light in future. I love stormy weather too (as long as I'm inside), but not when it ramps up to scary.

Beautiful pieces like this will chase away any bad weather (or mood for that matter)!

Nice representation of stormy fashion. I really like those hoops. The flash of the labradorite looks like lightening.
