Drifting. A necklace. Quartz & brass bullet casing.

If you're looking for something different, you might like my quartz & bullet shell necklace, which I've aptly titled Drifting. If you take a look at the listing, you'll get an idea why. I love the idea of reusing things to create unique jewelry pieces. With my Drifting necklace, I've reused some spent (empty bullet casings) bullet shells which I've drilled and then securely fit a piece of quartz crystal in (using the casing like a bezel), then setting the stone using simple jeweler's techniques. I just sold one last night and have a few more available. Thanks for taking a peek. ♥ tammy d.

After The Storm earrings

After the Storm earrings.
There's peace & calm after the storm. Sometimes we just have to make it through the storm, whatever it might be for us in life. God is with us in the storms of life.
These earrings are one of my latest creations and remind me of a rain soaked meadow beneath the sky, sun breaking through the clouds, after a storm.
Multi-colored semiprecious stones, silver, & mixed metals dangle from .925 Sterling Silver modern ear wires. made by me & for sale in my Etsy shop. ♥ tammy d.
                                                           After the Storm earrings: $25.00

"Sometimes it takes a storm...to really know the light
The scent of rain...The weight of clouds
Pulling down the sky.
Sometimes it takes a storm...To know how you feel
To understand indigo...And the varnished sun
Lighting up the fields." - Fernando Ortega's 'Storm' lyrics
I love Fernando Ortega's music & lyrics, one of my favorite unconventional Christian artists of this day & age, his beautiful melodies, music, instruments, & lyrics all compose to create beautiful & encouraging music for the soul and spirit. His words are richly Spirit filled and resound in my mind and spirit. Thought these lyrics to one of his songs, 'Storm' seemed fitting in accompanying my description for my 'After the Storm' earrings...

These are for sale in my Etsy shop now. You can read more about them by CLICKING the link below or in the UPPER RIGHTHAND corner of my blog page. (under Etsy SHOP items)
