The blizzard raged outside and I worked to a fevered pitch inside. I don't think I have ever had such a productive 24 hours but unfortunately the intensity may have been born out of worry.
Normally I really enjoy a good blizzard but during this one a friend had a heart attack and the stray kitty we've been caring for went MIA. Good news came late Thursday - my friend is doing really well and recovering from surgery and Bob Cat turned up unscathed. (Anyone need a Maine Coon Cat who is well behaved, talkative and gets along fine with dogs?)
I am struck that this colorful bracelet in waiting was born during these two dark days...or maybe that makes complete sense. The one blue bead was made several months ago and sat unused until I realized it could be the beginning of a chunky carved rendition of my Reef Bracelet.
I am carving, carving, varying my carving and varying my finishing techniques. Most of the pieces I am working on now are headed for the Radius Gallery but their siblings will be in the Etsy shop soon.
