The last of the Jewel-hicans for a bit...

There is a metric ton of stuff going on around these here parts:
more than I could ever express
in ways more profound than I have words for.

All I can say is that I will be able to give more information
in the coming weeks -
in the meanwhile, there is a trip to Minneapolis from the beginning to the middle of August
and a winged clutch in the works Leather-Shop-wise.

What you see here may be the last of the earrings going into the Metal Shop for a while:
there will be a few feather necklaces next week
and an EPIC piece that ties in the wing engravings I've been working on forever with that

So lovely, today's offerings - feathers, riveted and decorated with small swirling circles
benevolently made by my drill press:
I can manipulate it to make these at certain angles, but it's mostly just dumb, gorgeous luck.

They're like crop circles for metal!
The feather was a pure white plume found on campus
on my way back from a lovely walk a few weeks back.

These are so divine, there are no words for the color therapy and healing they give off.
Prehnite with tourmaline inclusions
Mexican jelly opal beads
and a trinity of turquoise finish these beauties off.

They are utterly luminous.

I love the way they beads come in all different shades of orange, a monochrome rainbow of sorts.

Lastly, a pair of natural carnelian posts, perfect and dainty.

I will be putting these pretty little delicacies in the Metal Shop
this evening
and then walking thoughtfully through this beautiful summer evening to do some yoga
and offer some prayers.

Love,
Allison
