I don't know about you, but I am so sick of this election season. I can hardly wait for it to be over - although I do have anxieties about what will happen post-election too. Anyway, while the news was on TV tonight, I just felt a need to escape into the sanctuary of my studio, where I made these earrings. Creativity nurtures my soul, especially at times when the world feels like it is sucking me dry.
I got the delightful ceramic drops from Diana Ptaszynski in August 2015, when I visited her, and her husband Colin, prior to the summer Bead Fest in Philadelphia.
Using dark green Irish waxed linen, I knotted the ceramic drops to multi-colored speckled lampwork glass beads by Sue Kennedy of Sue Beads.
I really like glaze that Diana used for these rustic drops and how they contrast and accent the smooth surface of Sue's lampwork glass beads.
Do you have a sanctuary place in your home or elsewhere? It's important to have a place for self-care and renewal.
