"The Promise of Spring"....a new piece

A new piece......."The Promise of Spring".

A tree with a door that opens and closes and within....a little fae holding a beaded branch of springtime.

Created with 2 gourds, tempered glass mosaic, French handwritten letters,
antique beadwork on a base of an old rusted iron lamp base.

A Prayer for the Gulf waters...please join me

Dr. Masaru Emoto is the scientist from Japan who has done all the research
and publications about the characteristics of water.
Among other things, his research revealed that water physically responds to emotions.
Many people have the predominantly angry emotion when we consider what is happening in
the Gulf. And while justified in that emotion, we may be of greater assistance to our planet and its life forms if we sincerely, powerfully and humbly pray the prayer that Dr. Emoto, himself, has proposed.

I am passing this request to all people to set an intention of love and healing that is so large, so overwhelming that we can perform a miracle in the Gulf of Mexico.

We are not powerless. We are powerful.

Our united energy, speaking this prayer daily...multiple times daily...can
literally shift the balance of destruction that is happening.We don't have
to know how...we just have to recognize that the power of love is greater
than any other power active in the Universe today.

"I send the energy of love and gratitude to the waters and all living creatures in the Gulf of Mexico and its surroundings. To the whales, dolphins, pelicans, fish, shellfish, planktons, corals, algae ... to ALL living creatures ... I am sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I Love You."

Please join me in often repeating this Healing Prayer by Dr. Emoto's.
Feel free to send it around the it on your blog.
Let's take charge ... and do our own clean up!

Metamorphosis....a new piece

This piece is called "Metamorphosis".
The "Chrysalis" ( the bower in which the fae sits ) is created with the use of a gourd.
The interior of the gourd has been finished with a tempered glass mosaic.
On the exterior of the gourd I have used French letters, beautifully handwritten in 1807.
The trim around the open windows of the gourd is lined with tempered glass. The very top of the gourd is finished off with an ornate piece of metal work from the Victorian age.
I have sealed the floor of the Chrysalis, with real butterfly wings.
The Fae is hand sculpted and costumed in antique fabrics and trim.
Silk wedding gown netting, bead work, rhinestones and pieces of the 1807 French letter are all used for texture and design of her gown.
When she is placed within her bower, one can see her back and sides through the openings of the Chrysalis. Her wings are antique beadwork and in her hand she holds a beautiful glass butterfly. "Metamorphosis" is about transformation.... a shift in consciousness. It is a prayer for our planet.
