Palm Sunday and My Heart

Blessed Palm Sunday to you all!

Here's the next step for my heart pendant~~~ Stamping! I love stamping. I'm definitely not perfect at it, but I even love the imperfections. It's what makes the piece look handcrafted and unique.

After I stamped it, I used Liver of Sulfur to "antique it" and then polished it with very fine steel wool. The Liver of Sulfur~~or LOS, as all the popular kids refer to it~~ is a common treatment that jewelry folk use on silver and copper. It smells sulfur-y, so I use it in my garage. You really want to wash your jewelry and your hands after using LOS, or people will back away from you. While wrinkling their noses.

Palm Sunday was as lovely as always. The children waving the palm branches and shouting "Hosanna!" As we adults watch, we know that the cheers and accolades will be changed to jeers and hatred on Friday. May we always appreciate what our Lord did for us.
Peace to you, my friends.
