Now that Spring has finally arrived it is time to go on a Fairy Hunt!
Remember to look amongst the lily pads….
Also, look up into the trees…
There you may spot a raven
Deep in the woods….
You will find the fairies!
And perhaps a unicorn too!
A druid lass may scamper past
And she will be adorned with symbols of the earth:
For more information on the Pentagram symbol: Pentagram symbolism
check out the garden…. (look behind the roses)
See them there, the little pixies hiding amongst the flowers?
They await the queen of the fairies…
I hope you have had fun in Fairyland! Stop by any time!!
WEDDING at Olbrich Gardens
Recently, my son got married. It was really a nice wedding. Such wonderful weather, and the gardens were in full bloom. Folks from Arizona, Texas, Georgia, New York, even Dubai came to see my baby tie the knot.
Before the wedding I had lots of fun making necklaces for the bridesmaids, and his wife also gave me some vintage faux pearls that her grandmother used to wear and asked me to make her a bridal necklace.
Don’t they look pretty? Even Daniel wore a brand new hat!
In a previous post I put up some pictures some gemstone necklaces that I made using stones that Daniel and Amanda brought back for me from their honeymoon. Among those stones were some un-drilled Peridot stone chips. I used them in little glass vials to make these pendant necklaces
I also strung up a couple of electroplated leaves today as well!
Baltic Amber, Carnelian and quartz
Garnet chips and faceted rounds
Crystal pendant with corrugated Czech glass barrels
Lapis Lazuli and Jade
Garnet and polished quartz
Lapis Lazuli and Coral
