It's been sort of like that for us this summer.....an ebb that had us so strapped that the DOGS didn't even get enough to eat for a few weeks. Then - as quickly as it came - the tide turned - and we are now in a state of FLOW - with a little extra to make breathing - and eating! - a little bit easier again. Who's to say when the tide will turn - so we're trying not to get super spendy - AND be grateful for what we've been given right now.I didn't realize when I named this piece - that it WAS sort of symbolic of what our summer has been like. This is "Flow" - Fluorite (The name fluorite comes from the Latin fluo "(flow") in reference to its use as a flux. A flux is a substance that promotes the flow and combination of other materials, and fluorite is often used in making steel and other metals that require the removal of impurities.) There's also a bit of Mountain Jade, and little pewter squiggles that sort of FLOW along the necklace portion. The focal piece is actually a large worry stone, with the 'worry' side, the indented side, glued to the backing.
And in preparing to write this blog post, I realized that I'm going to have to change the ETSY link photo - because I SOLD that beautiful etched Onyx piece to a buyer in FINLAND yesterday! The Etsy bead sales have been smokin' hot lately - and I've got lots more to list - so thank you, thank you, and keep stopping back. I want to relist lots of the jewelry too, but with two (maybe three) local sales venues, and all the local shows I have coming up, I need each and every piece available for sale. Once those are over, and it's all snowy and blowy outside (ugh) I can sit and list AND SELL to my hearts content! Then all I have to do is dig myself out to go to the post office! The predictions are that we will have a winter just like that - snowy, blowy, and lots of digging. Lovely. Let's hope the predictors are WRONG.
Hope everyone has a wonderful bead table Wednesday. Haven't posted anything for that in awhile - and today is probably no different. I'm between projects again - contemplating something for Halloween that incorporates this cool rhinestone studded SPIDER pin I found the other day. BOO! and EWWW!
