Day 17,300 Gratitude: 10 Years

In line with yesterday's "groovin'" theme, I've devoted some time today to puttering in my workshop.  I didn't wrap anything (yet), but I did find three pendants that were never listed in my Etsy shop.  I've just listed the Rainbow Moonstone pendant above.  I will list the other two within the next couple of days.  It feels good to get things in order.  It feels even better to bask in that familiar tug back to my workbench. 

This year marks the TENTH  that I've been wire-wrapping gemstones.  I wish I had kept better track of exactly how many I've wrapped during that time, but what even means more to me than the number are the incredible stories of how some of the pendants and their people were brought together.  These gems have been so much more than just jewelry to so many ... talismans for strength, amulets for comfort.  For the privilege of having a hand in their creation and supporting powerful intentions, I continue to be immensely grateful.

Julie - I just wore my pendant you made for the SARA fundraiser and received so many compliments. Every time I wear people comment on how beautiful it is. And the one you made for my mom is stunning - whenever I see it on her I want to steal it! Thanks for sharing your beautiful treasures with us!
