Beyond borders

On Saturday we held our first workshop as part of a women's retreat. What an incredible spot for the retreat. It was held on the banks of Lake Moogerah, with the dry weather, lack of rain, the expanse appeared to extend all the way to the mountain ranges. Had there been water in the Lake area, the settling would have been even more magical. Nevertheless, the energy of the area was calming and provided the perfect setting for the workshop.  The night before though was the complete opposite to the day of. My anxiety decided to pay a visit, my mind went into overdrive and thought that bombarding me with excessive worry over things that were already sorted or weren't...

30 drops in 30 days

I've come to the end of 30 drops in 30 days.  There has been a few lessons learnt in this time.  Firstly: spell check and check your pricing. I've found spelling errors, missing prices have played havoc with my anxiety as it's cause me to panic and stay up till the early morning hours. I couldn't settle my mind to rest.

After Wednesday last week, it was all downhill from there.  My tooth pain had been niggling, being an uncomfortable nuisance, that I could withstand while I was visiting my parents and creating new pieces. Then bam, last Wednesday I needed normal paracetamol, then stronger pain killers, and even those weren't enough. I was in pain, I was crying nothing was helping.  Thursday I had the infected tooth extracted and I thought, I'll be right...

A week of experimentation.

It's a little late this week, but I've been in the zone with making macrame necklaces. A few macrame chokers, creating a new range, using some new cabochon, and a quite a few longer amethyst necklaces. Ricky has also been quite busy learning to use tarnishing techniques for his raw copper wire pieces. These pieces involved research and checking of cabochon stocks that he's able to use.  He has experimented with timing of each piece he dipped in the tarnish solution. Some needing more time, others less, depending on the colour and type of crystal he has used in the pendant. It's been a learning curve with some amazing results.  The Vera Cruz Amethyst points parcel varied in size. Our...
