I've found that since I have been making jewelry that I am crazy about pearls. I don't really know exactly why, but here are a few reasons. They seem pure, they are organic, something from nature the beautiful sheen, the value that they have had for generations. I don't work with really expensive, impressive pearls. But little beauties they are! Here are a few pics of what I have been up to lately. I have a wedding theme or collection going in my head when I am making these. I know they could be used for any occasion but I just think it would be very sweet for brides to give as gifts to their bridesmaids to be worn at the wedding. Each one is similar to the other yet they have subtle differences to give them a little personality.
I'm a daughter, sister, wife, and mother of three, also a mother- in- "love" to two lovely young women, and grandmother. And I am excited to announce a new son-in-"love". We just celebrated our daughters wedding! I love to write. I dearly love God and am amazed that I can barely understand how much he truly loves me. I hope to be a compassionate person that tries to be a help to others. I have many health difficulties, such as Fibromyalgia, Arnold Chiari Malformation (which I have had surgery to decompress the malformation) and Sjogren's. I want to be known as a person who loves others, who tries to be kind, who has a deep faith in God, who is just so totally in love with my family, and did I mention my beautiful grandsons? I want to be more than a label of chronic illnesses, but even though that is a difficult part of my life, I also want to be a listening ear, or empathetic heart, to others who suffer from these same difficulties. Well, that pretty much sums up me!
