Only one bracelet this week... I am getting slow.
Naah. I was just really busy.
Lucky me, I had a few more Etsy sales this week. Makes me so happy to see my Preciouses finding loving homes.
I was able to acquire a very large and very beautiful plume agate cabochon, a real beauty really.
First, it made me think of aquatic images, maybe coral, maybe light on water. But somehow that was not what the stone wanted to be... It wanted to be a sky.
A great stormy sky over green woodland.
You know the kind of storms, that take forever to get ready on long summer afternoons, when the air is full of electricity and anticipation, and the light turns all strangely yellow, and then finally, the silence is broken by thunder?
I had that in mind with this piece. Something like it. Creatures bellow the sky in the woods stirring, trying to find a spot to hide before the fat rain drops hit them on the head.
And the landscape comes alive with the first drop, the wind picks up, you can hear the leaves singing with the wind, but the rain drops are warm, and it feels like nature is breathing through rain.
Not that all that could be contained in a bracelet, but those were my thoughts while I was stitching away...
