Sculpted Sleeping Maidens, Goddesses, Empowered Women, etc.

I've been working with this concept of a powerful woman image that I want to add to my jewelry. There's nothing political about it, I just want women to feel proud and empowered when they wear my pieces, or make others feel strong when they offer them as gifts. So these particular pieces have been recreated and reshaped and remade to the point that I feel a bit nauseous when I think about the process. But I'm still trying to find a perfect face that would express a woman being content, happy, strong and mysterious. Still working on that and when I find that perfect face I'm going to make a series of pendants or brooches that can be customized with other details. I also want them to have a bit of an Art Nouveau feel to them, like the carved pendants that were popular in the 19th century. For now I'll just leave you with some of the ones I've come up with during this process. As you can see green is my favorite color :)
