i had another good long day out in the studio today.
a "be the change" necklace
with a truly stunning labradorite
the flash has yellow, gold, green, blue, pink, and even purple
and i made this "heavenly" ring, with pietersite
this stone is crazy!
pietersite, among other things, is said to contain the "keys to the kingdom of heaven".
i also made some pieces for the gallery
and some wedding bands.
i've made a lovely new on-line acquaintance who has been giving me lots of new music, mostly live shows~ felice brothers, bright eyes, and a lot of new bands too. very exciting! i was telling him how grateful i was and told him that music was one of three things that really satisfies my soul. i would love to know what are the top three things that satisfy yours! please leave a comment and tell me. mine are:
1. honest, true connection with other folks, whoever and whatever form it takes
2. honest, true creation, whatever form it takes
3. honest,true music, whatever form it takes, but especially live
in other news, i had a crazy reaction happen with the chemical i use to oxidize gold today and have taken my gold wedding bands out of the shop until i do some investigating into the matter... also, the durango arts festival is coming up the weekend of september 11th, so i am getting busy making stuff for that. (remember moab?)
