This week I've been playing with semi-precious stones.
|Agates, black onyx, and Swarovski pearls in various combinations.|
|More black onyx.|
Tomorrow I will add clasps to all these pieces and put together some matching earrings and start adding them to my Etsy store.
I also made myself a new copper chain maille bracelet
and bought supplies to make inverted roundmaille bracelets in a rainbow of colors.
|Jet Black is in my shop now. Capri Blue, Peridot, Rose and Fire Opal are coming soon.|
Playing with beads is therapeutic for me. Experimenting with colors, patterns and designs grounds me in the moment; lost love, past regrets, and concerns about the future disappear completely.
This is a very good thing.
