Some days I just struggle with my designs. No stone looks right, no drawing seems to be good enough, the wire doesn't want to listen to my fingers. An artist block. A depressing day. The feeling of loneliness, hopelessness and desperation make the creative process impossoble. Well, it feels impossible. That day though, instead of just giving up and going to bed I worked through all this. I didn't know what I wanted to make but I needed to DO something. My hands twisted the wire methodicly making little loops and weaves. Loop by loop, rhytmic movements, like when climbing a steep hill which you didn't think you can climb but you walked anyway. Step by step. Loop by loop, again and again. And after a few hours a little Angel was born :) I named Her Angel Comforter after my Friend said "May she watch over your sleep and keep you safe" when she firts saw the finished pendant.
the pendant hangs on a tangerine silk cord, hand stitched.
