I Fear No Fate-
For you are my Fate- My Sweet
This is inscribed onto a part of the necklace. The flowing silver lines, briefly interrupted by pretty little orbs of red jasper and more silver as it falls down to the pendant takes the eyes back around again. Green turquoise is nestled into a fine and sterling silver bezel. Red and Yellow golds remind me of what it must have been like to take a chance, to travel away from home, and stumble upon spices and golds and other exotic things.
I have been meaning to make this piece, as I said in earlier blog posts...extending some of the lines from ee cummings poem, I carry your heart.
This piece was a joy to make because I was able to play with lines and flow and balance and color. It also is an external expression of my travels this past month as I flew, home, to Oregon and back, home, to Northern Virginia. And I remember all the while to continually balance my emotions and take deep breaths and giggle a lot.
