My mind has become quite fertile with the changing season - zippy cold with azure, cloud-covered skies - frost stuck on trees and flower beds.
So she went to work (my mind, that is) and gave birth to a few gifts for a few special someones. The first two photos illustrate charms that I've made out of found driftwood and buffalo teeth. According to many Native American cultures, the buffalo symbolizes generosity, gratefulness, and peace. Next, are the two photos of my vertebrae necklace. I found, what looks to be, a large bird skeleton and recycled some of the bones into jewelry, as I did here. Lastly, is a pair of earrings for a friend made from fly fish hooks. There is still much work to be done.
