Thanksgiving




Or how the witchy voodoo necklace ...

Most of the beads on this necklace have a meaning ... some were given to me by far away friends ( Laurence, Lindsay, Anuja , Claudia aka la Pitufina, Chantal) , some were bought or brought from places I like to remember, some bear important dates on them ( like the coins), some I made ( the little goddess), some I altered ( an old silver spoon from my grand mother) ... all of them are part of my life ... all of them tell my story... all of them tell how thankfull I am to be alive , to have visited places, to have met wonderful souls...


The first pictures is the necklace now , the last two is how the necklace was .. as you can see this necklace is a never ending story ... It will end with me ...maybe..
