Where's the edit button!

*sold
Hello, good day to you, it's taking me three times as long to blog today as blogger has served up a completely new template and I'm trying to figure it out. I nearly cried and went out to breakfast instead but here I am and I hope when I press a magic publish button it will all come out the intended way. This remains to be seen. This beautiful piece that was formerly claimed is now unclaimed and back for sale. 


A happy bluebird in layers of texture is perched on a flowering branch, the heart and faceted beads are carnelian, a small heart on the clasp is representative of a full, happy and peaceful heart, with a raised shaft of wheat I crafted with a strike mold I made myself.


*sold

Bluebird / Towhee two sided pendant with loads of texture and tiny little details, not unlike life itself. The bird suspended on a single chain......


is encouraged to flip revealing the other side, a full heart on the bird, a textured floral heart suspended.



*sold

Love of Nature (copper flower), fill me up, for without you, I for one would be sunken and shriveled, so we take our hearts to our hills our mountains, lakes, rivers, sand dunes, a tiny garden, an abandoned field and that's where we heal.....



*sold
become whole again.




These pendants can be worn several ways, with the collection and the clasp showing, the flower and heart removed or shown this way with the rest in the back.


*both sold

Lastly I made Hummingbird hearts 1260, that's how many beats a minute that tiny bird ticks off. Sometimes we are that bird, doing for others, work, home, children, friends..... frenzied....



These are the times we forget about someone that is very important to us, self. We forget about our own good selves. It is said to love thy neighbor as thyself, so what about you? Beneath the heart I added a tiny, Thai bell, a reminder to be good, to be kind, to love, you.



Behind each heart a little nourishing garden.




The bells are not loud a gentle dull tinkle is all, it will be your own secret code to take yourself out to coffee or skip dinner preparation for Thai food takeout or to read a book today and clean house tomorrow......



and whatever you decide to do for yourself, you will enjoy it wholly, with an open heart, free of guilt. I'll be working on that too incidentally.

Okay I'm ready to publish, check for errors, hope the picture sizing tool works, fingers crossed, blasto 

If you have any questions about this work you know how to reach me, I've contacted my niece in hopes of a model today, these will go to etsy tomorrow.

Enjoy your day all, love Ro

  3. Hearts seem just PERFECT for September...these birds are beauties and your (s)wheat heart is enchanting, especially for the prairie girl in me. Your parting words here about caring for ourselves with whole and open hearts are much appreciated...

    ...If only we would listen!!

  8. Aww, I missed these! (But yay, I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling a bit put out by Blogger's new interface or whatever they call it -- what was wrong with the old version??)

  9. I'm hoping it staves off dementia for a bit anyway, you know using the ol brain, creak....

    I must say the option for larger photos is nice, I finally found the blogs I follow though it took nearly a day. I wonder if I can find them again today :)

    xoxo

    More options, new new new!! My sons new phone makes me feel 1000 years old :)
