A new polymer master destined for pewter pieces. I'm imagining this as a link, placed between faceted rubies, or myriad colors of nuggets for a festive quality. Lengths of drawn cable chain would look tough, but tempered with sweet pink tourmalines....I think the effect would be magical. The quote 'love never dies' seemed like a very apropriate thing to carve on the back, it felt right. I believe the sentiment, more now than ever. There are some bonds that never weaken, no matter how much time has passed. At this point in my life, I've only known a handful of people that have passed away. It seems like life is being generous to me, keeping my cup full of blessings.
I often think of my brother that disappeared 19 years ago and I still feel like if I saw him again, it would be like old times, as though nothing happened (after I knocked him on his ass for leaving for so long, without a word). Although now it seems like the chances of ever seeing him again grow slimmer and slimmer and that it would be easier to just let him diminish in my thoughts. I still hope, every day, that this will be the day that he walks back into our lives.
Sometimes its the simplest phrases, uncluttered and unadorned, that ring with the most truth. So, that's the idea behind this next series of pieces, heart shaped links with carved symbols, universal and to the point. The next one features a rose, with thorns, of course.
