peace and safety
It's been a long year, with no jewelry making to speak of. After this dismal election, I heard of wearing a safety pin as a symbol of safety and non-harassment and solidarity. As a symbol, the humble utilitarian object may be most meaningful, but I am not alone in embellishing it - look up 'safety pin' on Etsy. Anyway, last week I managed a peyote peace sign. The first beodwork I have done in over a year. I almost gave up at the beginning, because my fingers did not seem to work at all. But gradually they developed a little facility. Took days, but I did make it.
