magic

.




Always without formulating the concept, I had based my sense of being in the world partly on an unreasoned conviction that certain areas of the earth's surface contained more magic than others...



 Had anyone asked me what I meant by magic, I should probably have defined the word by calling it a secret connection between the world of nature and the consciousness of man, a hidden, but direct passage that bypassed the mind.

Ceylon Sapphires

.




This pair of Ceylon Sapphire earrings were a special order to celebrate a birthday

Blue is my favourite colour, and I thought that these sapphires were beautiful, with a lot of sparkle

They were designed so that the stones were the feature and that they would move thereby catching the light. The backs of each of the 'bowls' holding the stones are hand engraved with feathers

































Happy Birthday to Claire!

She is half the dog she used to be. She is not impressed, and refused to look at the camera

old

I brought this purse many years ago from an antique market
hand stitched
I love the different scenes on each side. I wonder about who made it, and what it originally was. A purse with a zip a later reincarnation.
