Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving Holiday.
Wow! I'm behind on Ebay listings! I have been working hard to set up at Gallery 141 in Lancaster, PA. I have a nice inventory of clay and jewelry there. Please be sure to stop in and see me; I'll be there on Wednesdays and for first Friday.
I'll be getting back into the groove of ebay listings now that the dust has settled from the gallery set-up.
What have I been working on? I have finally mastered a piece that has puzzled me for weeks. I have been studying Reiki & wanted to create a pendant of ' Cho Ku Rei,' the Reiki power symbol. I was seeking a sleek, sturdy piece that does NOT require solder or gluing. I wanted to create this from my heart and only with my hands... and it came together the other night! FINALLY! A simple symbol and concept in theory...but proved to be a little more complicated than I anticipated!
The final result is STUNNING-- whether you practice Reiki or not, it is a pretty pendant! I have created a few of them with and without stones... in copper, gold, and silver. I'll be sure to make a couple more and get them listed later this week! They require a light touch and and a dedicated mind...when the day is right I will make a few more.
