I've watched and learned that many people are helplessly drawn to certain stones and colors. Sometimes the call is very LOUD. I buy labradorite every time I visit a wholesale show. It calls to me from the crowded tables. I can hear several tables away. Yet, it's tough for me to actually sell the bracelets I make with labradorite. I've done it and have no regrets. But it's like letting go of a piece of my soul. I know it's crazy. So what did I do yesterday? Made a new bracelet ,one of the 'Unearthed from Pompeii' series and used some slab labradorite I've been 'saving', saving for what I'm not sure. Now? The danger, I don't want to sell it. I put it on and am having trouble taking it off. I'll check back after the show this weekend, Fair Diddley at the Boone County Fairground, my last outdoor show this season. I'll let you know if I was able to take it off to sell it.
Wrap your wrists with Love!

Those are the very stones I fell in love with, and the stones you made into a bracelet for me. Since the day I got it and put it on, I have never taken it off except for showers or a bath. It is a heavy stone, and it hugs my soul and I can not live without it wrapped around my wrist. These are stones of the earth, and for someone rooted to the earth, we are a perfect match.

Thanks Jayne. That was beautifully expressed. I'm so glad to hear the your bracelets are meaning-full. Knowing that makes me happy.

I've completely given into my lifelong love of beads, stones, making stuff and stories, not particularly in that order.
