I needed a necklace I could wear and not one that wears me ( my voodoo necklace is way too heavy now... I'll need to do something about this soon...).
Turquoise, coral, amber, bone, silver, egg shell, lapis lazuli, labradorite and more...

dental work

polymer clay and ink
I wanted to make polymer clay bones... somehow the bones became teeth... my hands have a mind of their own I guess...

Made for a friend with beads she gave me and some of mine... let's hope she'll like it!
She designs and makes gorgeous dresses and coats... check her site :
She'll make me a dress once I have chosen the fabric...

wings and feet

Pies, para qué los quiero
Si tengo alas para volar

Last week, I saw that Dorcas from Wondrous Strange Designs made a video with her beautiful photos and raku pieces... She shared the link and I had to try it! Here's the result... I think it still needs some improvement...

Mireille et ses merveilles

Some time ago I did a swap with Mireille ( she makes the tiniest, cutest eye beads I've ever seen. I send her some stuff. You can see them on her blog.
Here's what she sent to me. The first photo is to give you an idea of the size of her beads... yep they are that tiny!

If you take a close look to my voodoo necklace, you can see three tiny eyes and a wolf tooth Mireille sent. And of course, they are some beads Sherry gave me, some from Lindsay, some from Lucie, some from Lucinda, some from Laurence, some from Suzanne..... One day I will detail all the beads and elements... I promise!

Here's another Dr John video. Wait 'til the end, he explains his necklace...

before and after

Here comes the ever changing voodoo necklace!
So here it is as it was before

An after photo.

And how I wear it, with the round robin necklace.

The world of amulets and talismans is a fascinating one. I finished reading Desmond Morris "Body Guards" it's as good as Sheila Paine's book. I ordered two more books on the subject with less photos but more theory : the complete book of amulets and talismans and le livre des talismans et des amulettes. Can't wait to read them!

brother men

Frères humains qui après nous vivez
N'ayez les coeurs contre nous endurciz

Brother men who after us live on,
Harden not your hearts against us.

"L'Epitaphe Villon (Villon's Epitaph)", or "Ballade des Pendus (Ballade of the Hanged)", line 1. (1463)

Dors bien dors bien
La mort n’en dira rien
Priez les dévots mornes
Nous dansons sur les tombes
La mort n’en saura rien
Dors bien dors bien

heather in bloom

J'ai dans l'âme une fleur que nul ne peut cueillir.

like a bird

L'âme est le seul oiseau qui soutienne sa cage.

Le Poète est semblable au prince des nuées
Qui hante la tempête et se rit de l'archer ;
Exilé sur le sol au milieu des huées,
Ses ailes de géant l'empêchent de marcher.
