I have been so grateful lately for many things... for this gorgeous weather we have had the past three days, for my wonderful husband, for the old folks at the nursing home where I sing, for my two fabulous and patient bandmates, for my great kids... each so different yet so special, for the trees and the woods and the birds which fill my daily life with beauty, and for my health and the chance to create and share art and music.
And so today I created a new necklace which I have named Autumn Blessings.
It's full of the lovely shades of fall in its gemstones of unakite, orange jade (dyed), carnelian, mahogany obsidian, petrified jasper, and millefiori goldstone, as well as a few pearls, Czech glass crystals, carved soapstone, and seed beads. It closes with a silver-plated filigree clasp. It's earthy and somewhat organic, easily dressed up or down, and I'll be listing it on Etsy this week.
