I was halfway through a custom order (the eclipse stone in yellow up there in yonder picture)
and the design I had chosen to represent something in the lady's life just announced that it was not finished:
So I moved on to a sweet high-domed Botswana Agate I'd been waiting to set for some time:
It's the idea of the infinite in things: in life, in love and in surrender.
To me, God and Mother Nature are such powerful creators that I feel nothing is out of reach: truly, if you want something it does exist somewhere.
Should we cling to one form, to one thing it means that ten thousand wonderful options elsewhere languish.
These designs carry the four winds and a sense of completion, what with all the circular elements, but each ring is reaching, reaching toward something just to the east
just over that next hill
through the woods.
In the midst of such delightfully heavy thoughts I added a side of candy:
Flourite in yellow, green and purple,
happily and solidly encased in a wonderful sterling shell.
Surprisingly large and yet light and airy in both weight and energy.
Listing these lovelies in a few and then off to a weekend that looks
like it's going to be pure joy.
Thanks so much for your respectful, thought-provoking and wonderful comments on my post yesterday: I cannot express my gratitude enough for your friendship and input.
