My son is constantly reminding me to not care what other people think. He's his own person and if people don't like him, well he considers it their problem.
People have talked about me in my small town because I don't have a job. They think because I don't have one, I haven't looked. (Despite numerous health problems I've put in hundreds of applications over the past 3 years).
He is always saying, "Mom, their life must be pretty dang boring if all they have to talk about is you. You should feel sorry for them."
I gotta love him! He's beautiful inside and out!

Swan Song

No, this isn't my swan song! It's just the name I gave this pendant, because it looked like my swan's neck was stretched out and that she was about to break into song.

I hand forged this pendant from 16g sterling silver wire. I then wrapped the edges with 20g wire, and covered them with a wrapping of 4mm white opal crystals. Isn't she lovely? This is my own original design, and it's ooak. (I couldn't repeat it if I tried). The pendant measures approximately 3 inches by 3 inches.

Bluebird of Happiness

is not what I've been calling this pendant as it kicked my butt for a week. But, I've finally finished it, and I must say I'm rather pleased with the results.
