pushing past hurricane ike

" rhinestone dreams"
I am working on new pieces that will be for sale in my next show in October.
It began with a vintage rhinestone brooch. It could be taken apart to use as a shoe clip or clothing accessory. Quite unique. This piece features one-half of the brooch. I added crystal quartz, swarovski crystal beads and rondells, yellow jade and faceted pineapple quartz. I wanted it to be simple yet elegant, not overworked. A piece you could wear with jeans and starched oxford shirt, or your favorite little black dress. The options are endless~
Please continue to pray for Houston and the surrounding Gulf Coast, as many people are hurting and will have to totally rebuild their lives. Thank God the damage was property and not person; but the pain is still very real and will be here for sometime to come.

Diane, as usual, your piece is just gorgeous. I love seeing what you put together - so inspiring!

I can hear the concern in your voice for the people who lost so much out there. Just know that we are still praying for the folks who need help. It seems like such a burden, sometimes, when we live so close to an area that was hit by a disaster. The overwhelming sense of helplessness in not being able to help everyone all at once can be unbearable at times.

I hope you and your family are doing well - how are your BIL & SIL? Just know that we are out here sending prayers your way.

:-) Molly

It's a lovely lovely necklace. I have a very similar rhinestone clip and use it as a pendant, as well as clipping it to my clothing. xoxo
