well - solitude can be very productive. I don't think that I have been so busy at the jewellery bench - ever! My daughter is away for the weekend celebrating and partying (I did not do enough of that when I was her age) and besides watching The Big Bang Theory - there is very little left to do after the cleaning and tidying up is done....
I dreamt last night, of finding a very old, worn coin, with gold leaf flaking off - it was beautiful but very fragile, the dream went on to discover an old chest filled with antique toys and childhood treasures - there was a tiny pink wooden figure from the 70s in there too...this is when I woke up, worrying about giving the coin to a museum before it became more damaged. I took me a moment to realise the coin had been a dream - and my heart sank with disappointment.
I have wondered all day about that coin - even when I was working on this little beauty of a Kingman purple with Bronze Turquoise stone. I don't know what the dream meant - but I'm guessing it's got something to do with my past. There is still a lot to fix there. I have no idea why I have waited so long - or what I am waiting for. Meanwhile.... I am busy at the bench - and it feels good.
