let me tell you that i despise teal, but i love this stone! it's a faceted apatite bead dangling from a melted and riveted silver disk. i also threaded the darkened chain with waxed cotton. really happy with the overall product - even thinking of making myself one!
i've been on a shiny kick for a while and decided to dig out my liver of sulphur and make some darkened pieces. forgot how fun it is and what a great effect it gives the silver. this one is currently for sale in my etsy store. cheers!
my good friend adrienne came for a visit and is painting this amazing mural in the window well outside my studio. check back over the next few days to see the progression. here are wips from yesterday, its already looking amazing!
i am overwhelmed with sadness this morning. found out that a dear friend, my sister's brother-in-law, died suddenly last night in a farming accident. he was my age, and the loss is profound. i wish i could scoop up his wife and 3 children and make the hurt go away. the pain is so raw, i cannot even begin to imagine what they are going through.
