It has been too long since I have updated my blog. There have been too many illnesses, deaths and surgeries that have managed to keep me from doing what I love best.
This hand-wrapped piece is special to me because it is the first wire-work piece I was able to complete since they removed a tumor from my wrist and performed carpal tunnel surgery. It has been a long road that was speckled by issues from a non-related condition as well. It is easy to take things for granted until you are no longer able to enjoy them.
This piece includes gemstones that include amethyst, snowflake obsidian, rose quartz, amazonite, carnelian, lapis, serpentine, jade jasper and agate. It is a continuous 8 foot long piece which allows the wearer to wrap it several times around the neck or across the neck, chest and waist.
I look forward to sharing more work in the next few weeks and catching up from my absence here.
