A substantial sterling silver cuff, textured like the raw desert landscape, set with two large cabochons held with heavy sterling prongs.
I did decide to list this bracelet after all, and here it is! I realized that what I needed to keep was the visual information and I am also confident that it will hold up just fine to normal wear. This may be my favorite piece of jewelry so far. I love everything about it.
This morning a severe storm came through as I was doing yoga to try and help my lower back, which I seem to have done something to, and rain and hail soaked the new studio carpet as well as our bedroom. I spent the rest of the morning standing on towels to absorb as much water as possible and moving furniture out of the studio, all while keeping a nervous eye on the sky. The problem is our aging, leaky windows and deteriorating exterior stucco and I can no longer ignore the fact that they both need to be replaced. This is going to mean a major work disruption but they simply have to be done, first the windows, then the stucco. I don't know the timetable yet, but will keep on working as best I can in the meantime.
So even with all the chaos I have almost finished the fiery Goddess Spirit Beads and if possible I will list them tomorrow...we'll see what the weather brings and if the window estimate allows me the time.
Never a dull moment!
