The mostly rainy and/or cloudy days continue up here. Dark...
...breaks in the clouds...
...and this happy little rainbow!!
Rain? Chilly? Karma looks ultra relaxed and warm in her cat bed.
Tori and I were talking about old necklaces and I did find the old ankh that Alan (my first love) made me in metal shop senior year. When Leah and I were first experimenting with beading I made a copper bead necklace for it...
...but I think I'd rather go back to the leather or silk cording I am so partial to.
Hard to believe this was shiny silver when it was new 43 years ago--LOL! The silver color has almost completely worn off. Looks more copper colored now. I kind of like the worn effect. Looks more ancient, as befits the old Egyptian symbol of life, doesn't it?
Of course, then I found my three favorites (all on leather or silk cord, you'll notice). The hunk of green moldavite that I had hand-wrapped by a woman in Stillwater. The wrapping was a little bit on the gaudy side for my tastes with all the curlycues, but I still wore it all the time--great energy in that stone! The sterling silver is in desperate need of a cleaning.
Then there's the blue (plastic?acrylic?) one with the rune symbols on the front. I saw this in a kiosk at the new Mall of America or the MegaMall, as we call it. (Also bought a set of stunning rune stones from the same place.) The series of rune symbols had something to do with protection by my guide or something like that--been so many years ago now I can't remember exactly. But it was supposed to have been blessed and the energy fixed or some such by the golden streak and the red dot. That's, sadly, the best my sketchy memory can do right now. Knowing me I probably have the card that came with it...someplace. I just immediately thought of it as symbolic of my guardian angel, GA, and that's what it has always meant to me.
Then there's the brass musical sphere! It's a chime ball that makes tinkly music when you move. I've seen a lot of them, but mine has that crescent moon shaped holder and you can remove the chime ball to play with it in your hands. (Which I used to do sometimes at work or in classes in college when I was bored--LOL!)
And here is the back side of my moldavite.
You can google moldavite. Very interesting tektite that is supposed to be 15 million years old.
Since I rarely leave the house I got out of the habit of wearing jewelry...or makeup, for that matter--LOL! But I have been wearing my moldavite necklace a lot since I found it. Still love it. Still need to clean it. ;)
While digging about I also found my golden graduation tassel from high school.
Even tho I doubt he reads my blog...thanks for the ankh, Alan. I still have it. :)
