Another something new...

Here's a few more new pieces for this Saturday

Vintage Victorian clock hand necklace with Haskel pearl and crystals

Lots of teeny tiny Charlottes in poured resin not yet finished.

Aren't they cute?

This piece has a Frida feel I just love. The picture
didn't come out the best but you get the idea... rosary chain, Haskel pearls, vintage finding and the double sacred heart medal.

Well I still have lots to finish. Hope to see you Saturday!

Ciao for now :)

Beads on the Tree

Remember these?

Last June I wrote a post about these special beads.
These are my prayer beads from years ago, way back when I taught high school Religion. I probably don't need to re-write the post, but if you want the full story you can check it out here... :)Here's the short version...there was an activity I did each year, usually with the Seniors. Each student would create a set of prayer beads in quiet meditation and after a few class periods we'd have a small prayer service & blessing and would each trade beads. There by all ending up with a strand of 30 or so beads made up of the intentions and prayers of each person in our class. I rarely got around to stringing my own sets. These beads are part of a collection that has been waiting to be strung and placed somewhere very special...

Well Bella & I finally strung them on some thick waxed linen.

The other day after a long rain while the ground was still squishy we walked out under the still grey sky and found the perfect spot to hang these beads that have been squirreled away all these years. We said a little prayer together and hung them here.

I really think here is where they've always belonged.
