"You can’t give up now! There ain’t no gettin’ off of this train we on!"
-Barret Walace, Final Fantasy VII
This image was going to be something simple when I created it. I wanted to share a piece that I felt happy about making because it combined various differences and was still something I found beautiful, and then I realized that this was a personal photo-piece as well. It was an image of myself that represents parts of myself. I'm a shy person naturally, and fear being judged on my appearance, so I like to hide my face in images like these, not because I want to hide, but because I feel confident in who I am. One character in a story from high school that I think of when I look at this is, "Boo Radley", from 'To Kill a Mockingbird'. I played around and gave myself a symbolic "tattoo". It's meant to be a feather, a wing or even a phoenix feather, it's all of those to me. It reminds me that strength and courage come from within, and you have to fight to keep them both alive and powerful in your character. So don't give up, whatever train your on.
I present the second necklace in the • F • O • R • T • U • N • A • line. I took the largest pendulum in my stock and attached it in the same fashion as the first necklace but they're vastly different from the other. This piece has amazonite and herkimer diamonds. I will be making another in this style also, it will be a bit shorter, but these are "The Lightworker" pendulum necklaces.
Amazonite works to help let your true feelings and thoughts shine through, and herkimer diamonds (yes, they are drilled), help with attunement, to people, yourself and situations. ☆ I hope this piece brings you hope. ☆
