Still Trying To Come To Grips With The Tragedy Yesterday In Newtown, Connecticut. I Wept Off And On Throughout The Night And Again Today. My Spirit Just Can't Seem To Rationalize Such Innocence Lost.
I've Finally Decided That If I Don't Quit Watching The News Reports, I'm Gonna Sink Into Total Darkness. So I Got Busy Distracting My Heart And Mind And Took Some Photos Of A New Pendant I've Been Working On.
I Used A Jeweler's Saw To Remove The Top Portion Of A Vintage Silver Spoon, Sanded And Smoothed The Surface, Then Torch Fired A Sweet Sterling Silver Bow To It. I've Seen These Type Pieces Created Before And Wanted To Try To Tackle The Process.
Y'all ~ I'm So Glad To Have A Creative Outlet To Help Distract My Spirit From Some Of The Awfulness Existing In Our World. I Sincerely Believe God Gave Me (and all of us) The Joy Of Creating As My Purest Form Of Saving Grace. He Knew I'd Be Needing It For Troubling Times Like Today.
