Fiery Fingers


As I mentioned I was on a little journey with these beautiful stones that look like lapping flames,. The stones were my fuel source but a fire needs to be fed so I placed them on silver planks of wood to keep them alive. I made some blazing saddles as it were.


I was listening to this yesterday while I was setting the stones ... "I am the Light of the World"

Well I've got fiery fingers
I've got fiery hands
When I get on up to heaven, I'm going to join a fiery band.
Just as long as I'm here, as long as I'm here, I am the light of the world.

The song came on quite by accident, a happy accident. Words taken from the bible, good words to try and live by also.



" Mystery Flame " size 8
I wish I could tell you more about this agate, I have no clue, it is a mystery, a gorgeous stone impeccably cut set on a double backplate lassoed with silver rope.


*sold "Flicker" size 8.25

Owyhee jasper a gorgeous stone, proving a little is enough, a little is just right sometimes.


"Trail Blazer" size 6.5

Remember you are also the light of the world.


"Sunset" left size 7.75.....right size 7.5
Keeping with a theme something I'm not terribly good at, I created these small, charming "Sunset" rings. I'm not sure where any of these agates hail from, I have a lot of agates, but look how precious the scenes in these stones are...sunset on the water, the last throws of light, that light that turns everything pink before it disappears.


I textured the bands to look like flowing, choppy water.




:) :) :) *three smiles!



*sold
The rings led me to nature crafts.. 

"Tree Line" adjustable 17 to 19 inch chain

I framed this oh so pretty dendritic, chrysoprase with a twisted vine, I nailed it to a plank of bark I found in the woods and suspended it by a leaf.

*That's my story and I'm stikin' to it :)


The bezel can swivel back and forth working with gravity as you move.


*sold "On the Wing" adjustable to 19 inches or any increment shorter.


I can't really say how I got here only that it was fun to dream up, maybe it was time for a cool down :)
The small birds rest on flourishes suspending the stone which is a parrot wing jasper in marvelous verdant shades.




A capped bead for the clasp.



keep those wings beating...


I'm going to add these to etsy tomorrow, Friday, the last day of May. I have mail to answer, computer and live catching up to do. If you are interested in a piece, drop me a line and I'll hold it for you.

Thanks for stopping by...
 Shine your light ladies!! Much love Ro

    1. I LOVE him Caroline, I saw him at Mc Cabes where this one was recorded...You can change the songs at the top with the arrow...listen to "Tommy" and try not to tear up.

      He's an amazing guitarist, his voice is another instrument and his song writing superb, in short he has it all!
