My Heart

SOLD - Thanks so much for the wonderful response on Etsy.


I opened my heart wide as the Arizona sky (under which this rare and special turquoise formed)

And out flew two bluebirds of happiness
and two of their breast feathers floated to the earth

And I cried, as I do when something comes from that place so pure and so loved..
that place feels eternal, stronger than death, stronger than defeat
or trials...

and when I create from it all is well.
All is well.

This piece is beyond.
Beyond, and then far beyond that.
Painted painstakingly, taking it down to nearly twenty-hair brushes to make the fine lines you see on the pair of beloved bluebirds
This took the better part of yesterday and quite a bit of today.
It is an heirloom.
The turquoise is supreme.

It was made with love.

It was made for a rock star, up to 4 inches wide at its widest point.
The colors sing.
I'll stop now: please don't think me boastful, my pride goes up to the Creator who made me a vessel for this piece of love.

No snap has been placed on this piece as of yet: it can fit up to a 7.5 inch wrist:
if you belong to this cuff,
please CONVO me.

Love, I want to be that rock star...
I want to wear such beloved work around my wrists...
alas, I've got to work harder at playing my guitar.
Hope this finds someone extremely worthy...

and it will.

I just have to tell you that I am deeply moved by the beauty that is you.
I've just read about "My Heart", an incredibly beautiful piece that just Sings! Verses, unspeakably sweet, and unending refrains echo the love you've poured from your open heart in the making of it.
What I've seen of your writing, music, leather and jewelry all carry so much of your special essence.
Thank you for sharing yourself and for touching my soul.
