A necklace for when you lose your path

Inside of this Exotica Jasper, porcelain finished and perfectly shaped, is a bird in a cupped palm
with a light song visibly pouring from its mellifluous beak....

It is paired with an aqua blue stone feather and a sterling note that reads, "All is well"

Because it is.

Sometimes, when we're in duress or simply entrenched in the myriad aspects of life that are painful we lose that precious knowledge, lose the faith that we rest in God's palm
forget that we have wings
and
have no memory of flight.

When you are lost in the woods

when you cannot find the breadcrumb you left behind to guide you

Remember your wings and take flight:

the new perspective of weightless height will show you the way.

All is well.
All is well.
All is well.

In the Metal Shop tonight along with the last of the gaspeite I have currently set in a lovely necklace....

Love,
Allison

Darn, looks like I was too slow - that stone is amazing:) Seems like you've been working double time lately. Take care.

Been working triple time - my train is coming to a stop soon, though ;) Just really creatively rich this month!!

xoxoxo,
Allison

Preach on sister-woman.

I'm fanning myself from the front pew.

Agree with Umber . . . AMEN! Or as we say here in the south,
"You shredded wheat!"

Whatever, you love us.

Gorgeous Allison! I could have used this tonight - I needed a little strength and reminder that "all is well" or rather "all will be well"
