i stayed up very late last night and finished three projects that i started a while ago and just haven't been able to complete.
this is the "mystery" ring, with turkish dendritic opal.
i love the high dome, pillowy cut of this stone, and the depth of the pattern is tremendous.
this stone has such a hidden and mysterious look to it. you can see so many things in it...a snowy branch, moss, a fern-like plant, a flock of startled ravens taking flight, a tree...
dendritic opal is said to promote growth, (spiritual and physical) and enhance organizational abilities. hmmm.... maybe i should hang on to it in that case, huh?
it is a delightful pointer finger ring.
this here is the "bold freedom" necklace, with a delicious pale wispy larimar.
i gave it all kinds of texture around the edges and crafted a cool spiral bail.
it is on my signature heavy, textured chain.
and, because larimar is said to assist one is recognizing self-imposed chains, and facilitate breaking free from them, i put "freedom lies in being bold" on the back.
