I love it when my sissy Ingrid comes to town.We had fun visiting the folks,hanging with my brother and playing with the kids...but my favorite time with Sissy was the day we strolled around in Downtown Melbourne...We visited some lovely stores and ate the most amazing lunch at "The 905 Cafe"
Just look at this delicious Brie,sliced apples and Walnuts on toasted wheat..Yum Yum..just melted in my mouth...
We also visited this really amazing shop named Creative Energy
..they had a huge variety of healing stones..I immediately became attracted to Pyrite...
Pyrite:An excellent shield against negative energy,encourages and sustains the flawless ideal of health,physical emotional and intellectual levels and enhances memory and recall ...
and having no idea what to to do with I took it home anyway...
It ended up crumbling quite easily and so I created this new piece "Earth in the Night" with smaller chunks placed inside my handmade bezel covered in delicious ICEResin
You can see the original chunks to the side of the pendant.
Sis also had a chance to show me a new knot technique called Shamballa which I instantly fell in love with..
I had picked up these super cool brass cut outs at BSue's
and was completely lost on how to finish them,but this knot teqnique gave me the idea for the sides.I ended up using it with out the larger beads and hand stitched on some seed beads.
"Heart Burst" Etched Brass and Satin Rope
Lastly I squeezed in some more Resin play.Covering up this sweet BSue
plate with paper,rub-on,glitter and Ice
Thanks for visiting friends!!
Now go out there and spread those wings.
