I am so lucky to have my car and escape to the countryside when I feel I need some fresh air and peace, I love walking through the woods especially, i found a new place Derrycassin Woods recently, its beautiful, with many walkways, a lake, old ruins and its sheltered which is fantastic with the weather lately.
When I am in the woods I sit and just be, in the moment also near water i feel so at ease and could stay there forever, true scorpio!
so many ideas come to mind
one of many bridges in the woods
Which inspired some other new work il share soon
This piece is basically the memory of My first visit there, that good feeling being at peace. 🙂
I really love these glass globes, the possibiltes are endless! Il share one for now.
delicate real dried flowers carefully set inside, As you can see in the photo above, In the silver piece I added delicate gold leaf to the dried heather,
You can see the tiny specks of gold throughout the heather,
the chains are silver choice of 18 or 20 inches with an extender and lobster clasp.
I’ve been playing cupid for couples.
These pet names couples have for each other. Some are funny & cute the ideas really sweet,i like it so i was asking a few people what they would like…
If i had a partner at the moment
I’d be happy if he/she did this for me or even thought of it!
On the subject, today I met someone whos 85 going on 16! Such a funny charming lady, I was helping her with some necklaces She had that needed new clasps/wire etc.. She cant get them open with arthitris.Id met her last week, It was a magical few hours, The storys She shared one in particular about her husband who passed away 3 days after their 50th Wed Anniversy. Clearly She was still so much in love & missed him dearly still (17 yrs he’s passed away) She showed me all her impressive artwork some of which She made her self using fabric. I felt grateful afterwards trust was there and how open She was with me and her vulnerablilty yet so feisty! (A phone call She recieved and the caller treated her like She was stupid) the way She reacted was briliant! I love that, Elderly withy men & women. You learn and have so much craic!
Oh about male/female pendants, I waffle alot ! My text messages are also like essays too!
I heard a story about a young man who has been on his own for 7 years, he had been in love with a girl and after a 6 year relationship She ended it. He was heartbroken. For months he became depressed but eventually got over it and moved on with life. Then he heard that She was in a new relationship, this time her partner was female. He was so shocked, ‘wasnt the same’ (the words used) basically hasnt been with a girl since & freezes up whenever he’s around any females.
I’m not judging atal, hope it doesnt come across this way. I really feel for him, it must have been so hard but u do have to move on. I am assuming its because of the area he’s from, people can be so so small minded and hurtful, their so insecure in themselves and have never really been anywhere or worked on themselves that its just natural to judge and slag people about their sexuality. So Be it s,bi,l,g, watever…. if u love someone fuck what anyone else thinks,go for it & if in the process someone gets depressed etc.. thats their stuff.
This posts for all u lovers out !
These 3 pieces are on there secod seal waiting to cure.
I started these on Wed night after a Healing thereapy. which involved self love…
Nature & My surrondings make me feel so much at peace with myself and refresh me.
I’m really enjoying life at the moment and healing. Im feeling grateful for My life, its a good place to be at this time of the year, as it can be so stressful and incredibly lonely. I xxx
I am having trouble today with my pc I had a really long description written & it got lost..So here We go again….
I really am happy with how this pendant turned out. I walk alot with my best friend, through forests , boglands and anywhere I can find that has a beautiful landscape. Its a need for me to get out into nature at least everyday living in town has its benefits but Im a country girl at heart (excuse the cliche)
I need to be out and get peace. It inspires me alot and thus with this piece I wanted to capture the day.
I have my little idea journal with me all the time and a few months ago i found acorns dryed them.
There was also heathers in the distance and the petals had blown away. I dryed all and left them. For a few months I wasnt able to do anything creatively as I mentioned before quite a few times!
Anywa I used blue/green seed beads (sky) green leave (grass) & set the acorn with the petals surrounding it. I really like how it looks and how the acorn is set. Hope u guys are feeling it!
