Paint the Town for Art on the Town with Andrea Salchert at Angels Forever / Windows of Light

6-9 pm

“Paint the Town”

at
Angels Forever – Windows of Light meet, view and purchase the art of Andrea Salchert

“I am a psychic artist from Stevens Point, Wisconsin. I am really passionate about combining personal development with artistic pursuits. I believe, creativity is the driving force for change that guides everything to grow and evolve.

815e0e9c-bba4-44af-84d5-73d8f46fc668

My primary focus is working in the encaustic medium.  I combine beeswax, damar resin, and various pigments to paint predominantly on wood panels. Encaustic paint must be warm to be worked, so I use a variety of irons, torches, and other heated tools.  The advantage of working with wax is the visual depth that can be created by painting layer upon layer of translucent medium. When pressure is applied, through scraping and polishing, the medium is left more transparent. It takes effort and finesse to achieve the surface texture that suits me. My method certainly is a dance of sorts between development and destruction-both creative and personal.”

Jewelry trends:  Spring Jewelry Trends “More is More”

The standout jewelry trends spotted on the 2015 Spring Collection runways in New York, Paris, London and Milan indicate that “more is more” with varying sizes, unique shapes and colorful jewels.

Trending necklaces seem to be either very long or very short. The pendant necklace is coming out swinging suspended on very long chain and emphasizing large single gemstones. Chokers range in style from thick layers of gemstones for a collar type look or single strands of beads for a daintier look.

TRENDVISION, an independent observatory and research department helping jewelers identify and market jewelry trends identified asymmetrical patterning as the new hot jewelry design. Earring styles feature an unbalanced look with a single earring or two different colors, lengths, shapes or sizes. This edgy geometric trend focuses on interesting metallic and gemstone shapes and carries over to rings, bracelets and pendants.

This February, at the Tucson, Arizona Gem and Mineral Show (the Super Bowl of trade shows for gemstones) blue sapphire, aquamarine, chalcedony, opal, lapis, amber, and the standout of the show – turquoise – were prominent.

Angels Forever – Windows of Light’s offers for ticket holders:  We will have models with the latest trending jewelry styles at the Fashion Show.  In the swag bag we will have FREE incense and a coupon to pick up a FREE incense burner.  Our store offer will be 20% off all merchandise and FREE chocolates.  Participants can also register to win a $75 gift certificate.  All ladies will receive a FREE flower and coupon offers compliments of Charles the Florist and Angels Forever – Windows of Light.

March Birthstones at Angels Forever / Windows of Light

Angels Forever / Windows of Light is your source for March birthstones.

March has two birthstones: Aquamarine and Bloodstone


Derived from the Roman word “Aqua,” meaning water, and “mare,” meaning sea, this pale blue gem does indeed resemble the color of seawater. The ancient Romans believed that the Aquamarine was sacred to Neptune, the god of the sea, having fallen from the jewel boxes of sirens and washed onto shore. Early sailors wore aquamarine talismans, engraved with the likeness of Neptune, as protection against dangers at sea. In addition to calming the waves, aquamarine also has a soothing influence on relationships, especially on married couples. A gift of Aquamarine symbolizes both safety and security, especially within long standing relationships. Some people even say that the Aquamarine reawakens love in a tired marriage. Other properties attributed to this stone include: facilitation of communication since it emits a gentle and compassionate energy; helps judgmental people be more tolerant.; helps one to take responsibility for ones actions; encourages the ability to ‘always be prepared’ and ; enhances ones ability for rapid intellectual response. While it varies in color Aquamarine is always a pastel blue but the darker the color, the more valued it is. The Aquamarine is a member of the beryl family. Beryl is a mineral that crystallizes within large grained igneous rocks on the earth’s crust.

The alternate birthstone for March is Bloodstone. The name Bloodstone derives from the legendary belief that the red coloration resulted from the blood of Christ spilling onto green jasper during the crucifixion. For this reason the stone has been called “martyr’s stone” and is also known as the “stone of courage”. Other properties attributed to this stone include: enhances creativity; intense healing stone; improves ones talents and abilities.; provides practical and dispassionate guidance; dispels states of bewilderment and obscure thought; revitalization of love, relationships and friendships and; helps one to recognize the beneficial aspects of turmoil prior to perfection.
