The solid copper sculpture is hand shaped in a rustic modern design capturing the free form spirit of the piece. I used a Lentil shaped Cech bead that looks like a tekite as the center of the hand. It gives a feeling of the curved & flat planes of a hand. The structure is wrapped in yards of 24g wired for strength and to convey the way the energy travels on the piece.
The Big Blue bead is appox 38mm Hand Made Artisan Lampwork Bead. I left a open lip above this bead to add another gem or crystal. The Dangle is a machine facetted Rock Crystal 10mm Bead. The crown is a 10mm Bicone of AB Swarovski Crystal.
The Copper Healing Hand measures 4.5″LX2.5″ W. The Bale is big enough to fit over most clasps or a thong of rawhide:)
This is for sale $55 on my ETSY Page –>X<–Click the spot and be whisked away to the wonderful land of owning 🙂

All winter I feed this yellow cat.
This is a cat with a life style and he has the scares to show it and claws – kitty has claws
This cat stays in front of a Paint Contractors office and warehouse. I met the people there and they are friendly and being as it is winter they do a skeleton crew and are not there often. Buddha Kitty braved the wet storms and was loyal to his adopted place. The Winter Rain has turned into slightly warmer Spring Rain and Kitty is not hungry any more. I continue to get strange downloads of Gemstone Critters. This is a Sacred Fish. It’s just a name don’t fret so.
It made me feel Artistic to make the Sacred Fish 🙂 I flew the Hand and the Fish together and I was feeling way artsy.
So Kitty is only here on the weekends now. Another Critter is Breaking Through. I am planning my trip to Portland to see my Sister, Bjoy. We intend to make ORMUS as a trial run before her big trip to the ORMUS Fest. I am not sure what they will be doing but whatever it is it will be Alchemy and all that Jazzy/Cool-Beyond-Tin Foil-Hat-Stuff. Until Next time.
Glad you are here

I had made these hands for decades and I had a thought about making one full size.
So much for keeping it simple. I was so involved I lost track of time and when it was finished – I was amazed. I had no idea how meditative the making would be.
I used a lot of gemstones, Rock Crystal rounds, Chalcedony, Citrine. Coral. Pyrite, Pearls, Amazonite, facetted Crystals, Swarovski crystals to name a few. It became complicated. Then I couldn’t stop taking pictures of it.
This is the back of the structured hand. It reminded me of the needlepoint I did decades ago. I loved the way the weaving of the tiny copper wires made the finished piece pleasing on both sides. The Natural Carnelian was so beautiful in the sunlight. I love these copper sculptures so much and this hand is working it’s magic spell everyday now. The project has given birth to many critters – some are recognizable shapes but some seem to be – different. More like a spirit ornament. I’ll post them as they emerge. If you are making something like this would you like to share the pictures here? I would love to see them! Here is another shot of the Gemstone Healing Hand.
If you would like to talk to me on my Facebook Timeline –>X<–Click the X and away you’ll Zoom then we can share our designs. I would like that. Just let me know by leaving a message 🙂 then I can friend you 🙂

I have become weary of all my former fascinators. I have decided to play in a smaller pond where still water is reflecting the inner me. Sounds cool. Think I’ll go fishing. Hone my angler skills see if I can catch my dinner with enough left over for Buddha. I renamed the stray cat I called Hobo Kitty last year. Now he has me walking through deep mud puddles in winter with a tasty morsel for Kitty. He has become my Buddha. I made a nest for him in the warehouse but he is distrustful of full time confinement. I entice him with kitty food from Trader Joe’s. No he will eat stuff but sleeping over is reserved for his other acolytes. Ah my fine Kitty. I feel and obey. I will fish for you please feel free, as if you need my permission.
I started to direct my thoughts to sculpture and keeping with the Gemstone Theme I made a Gemstone Fascinator. This tasty Fishy is called the Warrior Fish. Made with a face of Moss Agate makes him Fierce in the face of Doubt. His body is of Rainbow Moonstone embellished with multi colored Moonstone and Swarovski Crystals. I placed two pieces of Mystic Crystal at his brow so it will aid his sight in the night. Softness crowns him with Aqua Chalcedony. His Fins are crafted with strength and Golden Shadow Crystals. He is a cutie. Have you ever wanted to just say Hi? Try me on –>FB<-click here and it will whisk you to my Timeline – I appreciate you being here 🙂 This is another view of the Warrior Fish,
Flies 4″X3″ which includes a hand fashioned solid copper hook. I made him swivel by hanging from a brass Fishing Thingy. The Face is a top drilled Moss Agate 22mm the Body is a cluster of 9mm faceted Rainbow Moonstones Ovals, a 10mm heart shaped Rainbow Moonstone and 6&4mm rounds of smooth Moonstones. There are Swarovski Crystals in shades of yellow Topaz and Golden Shadow. A fun piece for your Medicine bag or to fly where you might need the ability to see to battle the fears of the night. Sounds Cool and it is Fascinating to watch 🙂 I haven’t decided if I want to put him on my jewelry site on ETSY or make another spot to sell these FabCool Spirit dolls. More later –
glad you are here
Why am I in this thing called a tizzy? What is a Tizzy? How Can I get Out of This Tizzy? Seems to be a Vortex of Anxiety here. This how I combat a tizzy: I reach into my medicine bag and hold this!
Gratitude is the Gateway
One of the great things about this gemstone is that it is here at all. How many years does it take to create a fossil? The fact that someone found this gemstone, cut it, faceted it, put a hole through it, sold it, I bought it, made it into some thing you can wear, and now it is posted on a worldwide device that alerts you to its existence. WoW – now this bead wants to say
A Fabulous Fossil – Coral – All The Shades of Calm – Great for your Medicine Bag. The structure of coral looks like a Tootsie Roll. All Beautifully stacked in neat columns. This Softly Faceted top drilled Bead is smooth to the skin.
This is a Custom Made Piece so it is sold. It was made to slide over a 3mm leather necklace with a small lobster claw clasp. And, I can make this so it slides over the clasp and rests over your pearl or gemstone strand making a Pendant Enhancer! Just tell me the size (mm) of your necklace and I can make you a Rustic Modern Look for any of your classic necklaces.

Are You Obsessing?
Obsessed with a particular behavior? Is It Healthy? Why are You Attracted? Why the interest Now? These are questions you are asking about something that has caught your attention.
It is about the time and the times of your life. Stages are like doors they open we go through with some trepidations but we go through the doorway. On the other side we discover new things and we busy ourselves liking them or not.
Carry It With You
My Medicine Bag
This is a Medicine bag with a Moss Agate. I call it my Warrior Stone. When faced with a new project or a sadness in life I gather my bag and look for this stone. It reminds me when I wear it or hold it in my hand to

This bag is under $10 the Moss Agate Gemstone Pendant is Niobium wrapped with a Big Bale to fit over most clasps and is available at my ETSY Web Store.
