Dragonfly sitting on a dry riverbed.

This gorgeous Jasper stone reminds me of a dry riverbed in Africa. With the tree of life beneath. The earthy colours go beautifully with the splashes of turquoise. I am very happy with the way this turned out and have it for sale in my Etsy shop.

I just love this delightful hand painted cabochon on porcelain by Jean Cotton. It was fun to work on and she makes me smile when I look at her. The beaded necklace is made up in the half St. Petersburg chain stitch using seed beads. For sale in my Etsy shop.

Vintage Bird pendant necklace.

This beautiful Vintage style bird is just lovely and was a pleasure to work with. The delicate pinks and greens compliment the soft colours of the cabochon. The spiral seed bead necklace enhances the delicate colours perfectly.

Wolf necklace with earrings.

This stunning Wolf cabochon was purchased from WhiteWolfTradingCo. The background is made from beading on a loom. I had forgotten how relaxing loom work is so will be doing a lot more of it this year. The earrings are made with brick stitch and Delica beads. This is a very special piece and definitely one of a kind.

I was sent the article below by a friend and found it a beautiful read. Nature is amazing !


The first three wolves are the old or sick. They give direction and pace to the entire pack. If it were the other way round they would be left behind losing contact with the pack. In the case of an ambush they would be sacrificed.
Then come 5 strong ones, the front line.
In the centre are the rest of the pack members,
Then the 5 strongest following.
The last one alone is the Alpha. He controls everything from the rear. In that position he can see everything, decide the direction. He sees all of the pack.
The pack moves according to the elders' pace and help each other, watch each other. Again I am left speechless by nature. I knew that wolves were different, but didn't realise how much we could learn from them. I didn't know wolves put the elders of the pack first. A lot of people on this planet should take note. They are to be seen upfront setting the pace and direction. Not invisible from the back of the line.
Now look at Cesare Brai's photo below.
