Happy April Fool's Day!
No, I am not in the southwest (this photo is from a trip to Tuscon a few years ago)... I am still in PA.
Things have been a bit chaotic this week, and I am sorry I missed yesterday's post.
My mom has been sick; and is in the hospital (although she is doing ok)... we had a crazy wind storm....
and well... things just got busier than usual.

Today I am catching up on a few things around the house before I go and run lots of errands...

Oh!.... and here are some earrings I made the other night and thought I would share with you.
For this pair, I have used turquoise toned Swarovski crystals, some gorgeous (old stock with super rich color) Lapis Lazuli stone and lots of sterling silver wire and beads. The charms on the end are super special. I had these custom made from an artist in Israel using the lost wax cast method; and she is no longer making them. They are a Sacred Geometry design called the Merkaba/ Merkabah.
I will be listing them in the Etsy shop asap.

"The Merkaba is an extremely powerful symbol. It is a combination of two star tetrahedrons - one pointing up to the heavens, channeling energy down from the Universe to the earth plain, and one pointing downwards, drawing energy up from the earth beneath. The top, or upward pointing tetrahedron is male and rotates clockwise, with the bottom or downwards pointing one being female, which rotates counterclockwise."
