I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE...
Last Thursday I got to spend some time with my friend Amber. I wonder what could be in these bags? They are so lovely I didn't even want to open them...
These are the goodies that my friend Amber made for me. Don't know if you can tell but I totally LOVE Frida.
That brass necklace is made by using resin. It's such a cool technique. And what am I going to do with those tags? They are just too nice to put on packages. I guess I have to meditate on letting go. One day I am going to get there. Amber is so talented. Go check out the rest of her pieces either on Etsy or her blog Yellow Flower.
I made another one!
This is a three wrap bracelet made with faceted carnelian stones. It is a talisman and brings good luck to the wearer. It also gets rid of anger, envy, and hatred. I favor carnelian for it's reddish color. A good stone all around.
Finally a necklace of protection. I call it "Dust to Dust"
|Dust to Dust|
I used two types of copper chain. It is 32" long. In the picture you see three things that hang from it...
1. Tube with el pocito, Holy Dirt collected from Santuario de Chimayo.
2. Coin with Pope Pius XII
3. Bone Skull because we all end up like that in the end.
Don't be scared.
I was contemplating about the meaning of the necklace. Is about dying or protection? Maybe both. I personally try to be in the moment.
Have a great Sunday!
