I have made myself a little scarflette for this special trip, filled with things I need:
Alien-tiger courage (look at the mouth on that thing!!?)
Pure blue happiness (rough Arizona turquoise)
And I wanted to share one last piece with you before I go, as it is so dear to me.
It is a piece of pyrite in quartz set into a sterling silver hammer-formed daisy.
Like the bag, it's been a long time coming.
It is a size 6, and I will list it in the Metal Shop when I return next week.
It has a very organic shape, like a slightly trampled daisy. Its design and stone choice is meant to emphasize the power of grit and determination.
It is not perfectly bloomed
it is not pretty
The woman who claims it will be one who has come out the other side of sorrow or pain, knowing that when that life companion greets her anew someday, she'll be ready with a pot of tea
and a tiger in her chest.
There is no other way to put it.
Love to you all, and a happy weekend!!
