Tomorrow (Thursday from Wednesday's post) was indeed better, thanks in great part to your incredible friendship and encouragement.
A lot of very important things got done and they were done with a sense of peace and wonder: I had an especially amazing piece of Japanese Rhodochrosite I've been holding (literally) every day for nearly a year: it was time to set it and to do so I made an Anini Beach Snorkel setting and voila:
It is the yummiest gemmiest pink stone on incredible depth and a peaceful spirit. I felt it was very important to wait until a deeply peaceful time to make it -and- (as you well know) the days after a good old-fashioned cry are rich with what remains when the tears carry the toxins and emotions up and out.
Lovely, lovely quiet.
The perfect moment for making!
I also made a little labradorite necklace for some lover of double-chained simplicity:
And finally a custom ring for a budding collectress - yay!
After these items are listed I am off to Kodiak Jack's for round two of Sonoma County Idol!!!
Throw me some fairy dust for good luck :)
