 Many of you have heard me talking about a double bezel ring that gave me fits...down to ruining the original piece of antler i had intended to use....well it's finally finished....unbelievable as it is to myself. It has turned out wonderful in spite of the many difficulties encountered. It's HERE now awaiting someone to claim her as theirs.   Here is a picture of the completed piece:

Be Still My Heart-Antler Totem Faceted Prehnite Ring- Size 7

The Newest Critter-BEE Totem Custom Pendant

Little Bee Pendant
Bee As Totem--

"Bees are the symbol of fertility and sexuality. 
Its honeycomb, a hexagon, is the symbol of the heart and 
represents the sweetness of life found within our own heart. 
It is also the symbol of the sun and all its energies.

The bee reminds us to extract the honey of life 
and to make our lives fertile (productive) while the sun shines. 
No matter how great the dream is, there is the promise of fulfillment 
if we pursue our dreams.

If a Bee has shown up in your life, examine your own productivity.
Are you doing all you can to make your life more fertile? 
Are you busy enough? 
Are you making time to savor the honey of life and not becoming a workaholic?

The Bee is the symbol of accomplishing the impossible.
Aerodynamically, its body is too large for its wings and should not be able to fly.
Although now we understand how it does fly (high rate of wing movement),
the Bee remains a symbol of accomplishing anything you put your mind to.

In Hinduism, the Bee relates to Vishnu, Krishna or Kama, the God of Love.
In Egypt, the Bee symbolized royalty.
In Greece, it was the symbol of the Eleusinian Mysteries.
The Celts associated the Bee with hidden wisdom." 

      This pendant contains a beautiful BIG bumblebee's reversible and can be worn
 front facing or back facing---designed front and back....this was a challenge...especially 
working with the twisted wire.  Also I'm attaining Pro status on patina's...YAY!!!...for i have 
struggled so.  The back patina is even more refined than the pics show...i didn't re-photo...
wanted to get it  mailed off. Here are some back images, as well as clasp images and a few more of the front. 
He turned out better than i could have ever imagined.  ❤❤❤

Update on the antler slice ring.....have a replacement piece....need to get it sized and the ring 
antler/prehnite "Antler Totem" will be up on the blog soon. Also i will be doing a giveaway for Thanksgiving....
hopefully a pendant, possible earrings....announcements coming soon.
