Piece for Krystee's Mom
« on: December 07, 2016, 03:31:15 PM »

This piece has a backstory...

About a month ago I was on Firemountain placing an order of supplies.  I happened upon this crab charm by pure coincidence.  I had no need for it, no customers asking for it, had no clue what to even do with it, yet a voice in my head - intuition perhaps said, "You need to buy this."  So I did.  I learned a while ago to listen to my intuition, it tends to be rather spot on.

Fast forward to late last week - Krystee posts on Facebook that her Mother has cancer and needs surgery.  Krystee's mother LOVES crabs, one of her favorite animals.  Then I realized why that voice told me to buy the crab charm.  So I sat down and made a pendant and earrings for Krystee's Mom.  It will be going out in the mail tomorrow.  It will be a bright spot for her and I know she will love it. 

Materials are:  Indonesian Fossil Coral, Swarovski Crystals, freshwater pearls, Czech and Japanese glass seed beads.

EDIT:  Even in the shade of my house the AZ sun wanted to give me fits getting a good picture!

Sometimes when we are generous in small, barely detectable ways, it can change someone else's life forever. - Comedian Margaret Cho.

A man wearing a helmet defending his country should make more money than a man with a helmet defending a football!!!  (From an email message I received - so true!)

It's beautiful, Amanda, and I'm sure her spirits will be lifted greatly by your generosity!
