We went over to the Turtle Bay Resort last night to watch the sunset.
As the night grew darker we walked along the lawns towards the glass walled "wedding pavilion"....and there....held within the white and glass room overlooking the sea....
we witnessed a faerie tale moment.
A young bride adorned with a princess crown.... seated alone with her prince...
celebrating their moment of commitment. Enchanting to behold!

Today was a perfect day....I was able to get back into the studio and create.
I had found a coconut shell on the beach...not the outside husk...but the inside shell. It was a neat shape so I took it up to the studio and put it in the microwave for a minute to make sure there weren't any critters living in it.
Then I got out my embellishments.
Tempered glass on the inside with abalone shells and then abalone shells around the rim. I added some metallic powders and apoxie sculpt and
Val-La! So much fun!
Tomorrow I will grout and then let it sit for a couple of days before I seal it.
The other photos show a piece I did from a palm frond. I love the look of the tempered glass. It's so deep and mysterious. Particularly against Nature's simple beauty. The contrast is very cool. The white "thing" on the end of the palm frond is a skull of a fish...or something ....that I found on the beach. Very wonderful pattern and shape. Isn't Nature inspiring!
I think I have to find a gallery or sell in Etsy cause I can't stop creating and what am I going to do with all of these pieces!
The retreat ladies have departed....the studio is back in order.
Last night we had a wonderful storm with great lightning flashes and this morning the Kona winds are here.
I love the Kona winds! Normally, here on the North Shore of Oahu, we feel the cooling Northerly Trade winds, but when the conditions change to Kona, the winds come from the south/southeast and are warm.
Today is a beautiful day. Wish you were here!

In 7 days we met and became close friends.
We laughed and shared and found ourselves returned to our strength, our power and our beauty.
We celebrated and cried.
We danced and sang.
And we created beauty and powerful magic.
It was a fabulous week and I feel blessed to have been a part of it.
And in the end each threw their lei into the ocean ......if it washes back on shore, as the myth goes, they will return to Hawaii.....

There was an interesting bit on our news here in Hawaii about capturing "orbs of light" at the Heiau ( ancient spiritual center ). These are ones that we captured just the other night. And no.....that is not the moon. The moon rises in a completely different location. That is an energy orb.....
