Dark of Night and Fertility Dolls
I've been busy at the beading table and have just posted a couple of my favorite pieces on my Etsy site. This is a necklace I created called "Dark of Night".
This one is an Art Deco Brooch and is one of my favorites. (How many of these can I justify keeping?). The Czech Glass leaves have a beautiful fire-burnished finish.
I also made this fertility doll for friends who are trying to have a baby.
Speaking of fertility, I finally took off my healing bracelet that I had made when I was first diagnosed with breast cancer. It was made with Cat's Eye, Citrons and Garnets. I'm finished with all of my treatments now and feeling fine, so I gave it to a friend who is going through some health issues. Hopefully it will calm her fears. In place of my healing bracelet, I'm now wearing a fertility bracelet made of Ruby Zoisite and Peridots. It's not that I want to become pregnant (no chance of that anymore), but because I want to have a fertile imagination so that my beaded creations will transcend the mundane ideas I used to have. I want to create WONDEROUS beadwork. I'll keep posting my work and you can judge whether it's working or not.
