Peace Pendant ICE resin

Donna has been cutting my hair for years.  When I tore the ligaments in my right wrist a few years ago, she colored my hair too.  She does whatever I ask, is always on time and always kind and friendly.  When she asked me to make a necklace for her "hippie" cousin, I said yes. 

 I have a tendency to make myself nervous about commission pieces.  "Is this what she wants?"  "Is this going to work?"  "Does this look terrible?"  I work myself into a dither.  Whatever a dither is, anyway.

Just finished this pendant.  Still need to string a simple necklace and add some charms.  I hope she likes it!  But if she doesn't, I'll take it to Benicia Bead and they'll find a great home for it.

Two wonderful things this week:  My braces came off!  Yay!

And our new fridge arrived on Wednesday.  I never realized how much I LOVE having a working fridge!!!

It's all good.  Hope it's all good for you, my friends.

ICE Resin "Look at the Big Picture" Faith Pendant

 Made a pendant for myself.  I'm playing with little copper boxes that I fold from thin-gauge metal and fill with resin, and I always make the "experiments" for myself.  I'm the guinea pig here~~
I'm also reminding myself to stop a second, in the midst of the daily stresses, and remember what I believe, what is truly important.  To remember Who I trust.

It's a rainy December 1 here in Northern California.  My DH is watching "The Santa Clause" and the orange kitty just stopped walking over my keyboard and rubbing against my hand as I try to use my mouse. :-)

May you all have a lovely day~It's Advent time!
