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.
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?)
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.
