Mor Jewelry and Eat Mor Chikin!

 I made a couple more pieces for my meaningful jewelry line. This one is for safety in flight. It has an airplane (upwards bound of course), a compass to keep your path and soapstone, which is used for calming the nerves and helping you be prepared for anything.
 Malachite is used for protection and is said to detect impending danger. Copper is related to the sun and so the copper sun charm was a good pick.

This piece is for safety in travel by sea. A charm with a lighthouse (to keep your ship safely sailing in the right direction) is attached to an old rectangular thingy.
 The mermaid swims below for added safety. (who knows the ocean better than a mermaid?)
 The amethyst chips to either side of the mermaid are used for protection, calming and to ward off danger.
 This bracelet I made from a piece that I got from Fanci a while back. You can see the "cuff" part in the 2nd picture here.

The beads on the front look like roughed up labradorite but is actually acrylic. The charms and chain part are new stock aged with patina paint.

I love that bit of rusty-ness around the chain and holes of the beads. The brass/bronze piece is very heavy.

In other news, hubby and I did another 5K on Saturday night. One of our chick-fil-a's here does a fabulous light display every Christmas season. There are rows and rows of arches covered with lights going over the drive-thru lane. The whole building and parking lot is light up and the lights dance to the music! You can tune into a radio station and sit in the comfort of your car and watch the show.

Me! Eat Mor Chikin!

And a blurry pic of me just after crossin' the line.
 About 3/4 of the way through, I injured my knee. My right knee is already bad from an injury back in July. Now my left one is shot. Boooooooooooooo. But I managed to finish the race. Not in a great time, but still a finish!

OOPS! Had to edit this post cause I FORGOT to mention it's my beautiful little girl's birthday. She is 4 today.

Everyone tell Mysti Happy Birthday!! She's been the most wonderful baby in the last 2 1/2 years since we adopted her! Spoiled rotten rotten rotten!!


  1. Happy BD Mysti ;)

    I loooooove the new jewels that you made! Each one is a treasure. You must be keeping them, since they are not in the shop, and I would too! Each one is really special!

  2. Debi, I LOVE those pieces! I think they are my favorites! You cracked me up with the rectangular thingy! Congrats on finishing the run with bum knees. You are an inspiration to me!
