heaven and earth and a little change too

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?)

everything is beautiful as usual. I love the necklace and specially the flower cab necklace pendants. Maybe you can tell me what stone is good for your brain or head. I just found out I have a large brain tumor this week and I want to wear something even if it does nothing it will make me feel a bit less scared. Love the music again ! specially that first song. thanks ~~

Lovely new pieces - love those colors and flashes.

Lisa-Maladylis, I know I don't know you, but my dad is a brain tumor survivor (a very large pituitary macroadoma). I will keep you in my prayers, wishing you the best.

My soul is filled by things which complete engage me and make me lose track of everything else whether it be creating, music, photography or reading. It is also filled with long walks(right now the butterflies are everywhere and the soybeans are growing tall) and performing secret random acts of kindness.
