Buddha Loves Fishing


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,

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

UNDER THE INFLUENCE


The Patterns of My Focused Attention

What holds my attention is light through a colored stone.  Gemstones capture my attention.   They hover about me, Zeppelin-ish, sparking waves of thought.  It’s fun to play in the reflected lights.

A Few Weeks Before Phnom Penh Fell

I was in Northern Thailand working, loving.  Almost famous I wore my beauty as a talisman. What in the world could go wrong?

After April 17th, being an American 150 Kilometers from the Cambodian border my request to extend my visa was denied.  I only had two weeks to shop. Determined to go to Burma for Jade my boss told me no, NO!   Under no circumstances, no.  I met a man named Hardy Stockman, a German Soldier of Fortune.  He offered to take me to a village in Burma where he was sure I would find the Jade I was looking for.  We traveled by car as long as the roads allowed.   When we got to the Fong River we had to walk across the bridge into Burma.   We crossed under the watchful glare of men with machine guns clutched to their chests.   I was electrified by danger and charged with adrenaline.  That mission for Jade linked my spirit forever to the intoxicating energy of  The Colored Gemstone.

How to Wear A Power Stone

The most effective way to harness the energy of a Gemstone is to wear it.  Bingo!  I am creating jewelry.  My problem:  I’m  allergic to metals.  That’s great.  I found my niche.  I could design jewelry for the Power Hungry Uber-Sensitive  Rustic Modern Girl.  She also would like Minimalist Furniture, Haiku Poetry,  Irish Knit Sweaters on a chilly morning  walk by the lake.  That’s My Girl.

Petro Tourmaline colors of Earth

I heard a story about a Princess dowager in ancient China who tried to acquire all the Tourmaline she could so she could be buried with it.  She believed something about the Gemstones’ Energy.  Hummm.  Looking for clues I stumbled upon greater minds like Marcel Vogel, David Pond,  Medicine Woman Running Deer, Brett Bravo, Melody.  So many people so many energies.   The Art of making Power Jewelry is:  Finding a Style &  Direction.  Now all I have to do is make something that doesn’t suck.

Rustic Modern Gemstone Jewelry

That brings me to non-corrosive Niobium, Titanium, Gold and now my new favorite, Argentium Sterling Silver.  My collection of  gemstones grow.   I make jewelry for myself and my friends.  My pile of jewelry grows.  I must find a way to sell more jewelry or stop buying gemstones.  I opened my Web Store on ETSY.   Now perfect strangers want to buy gemstone encrusted jewelry.  Oh and the original  Burmese Jade?  The Beads are always with me.   I talk to my gemstones.  I think they are beautiful.  They think I am Beautiful.  Who could argue with that logic?
